Philadelphia, PA, Sept. 14, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

PolicyPak Software, the leader in desktop settings management for Windows desktops, today launched a new solution that manages all file associations for Windows 10. PolicyPak File Associations Manager helps to quickly dictate which file opens what application and updates file associations instantly, as an organization’s needs change.


“Getting Windows 10 to work with file associations can be such a challenge – just mapping a PDF to work with Acrobat or getting MAILTO: links to work with Outlook,” said Jeremy Moskowitz, CEO, PolicyPak Software. “This used to work great in Windows 7 with Group Policy Preferences, but this is no longer the case. To dynamically manage file associations with Windows 10, PolicyPak File Associations Manager is the only solution.”


With PolicyPak File Associations Manager an IT organization can deploy Microsoft software (SCCM, Intune) but then quickly associate the application’s file extensions with the correct application, and keep those associations applying, even if the user changes them, or the computer goes offline.


Benefits of PolicyPak File Associations Manager include:


  •        Associate file extensions to Windows 10 applications
  •        Control and associate entire categories of Windows 10, like Movies, Photos, etc.
  •        Discover what associations exist for any application
  •        Instantly create a collection with all or some associations for an application
  •        Resolve conflicts if multiple applications want to manage the same association(s)
  •        Download pre-configured associations
