Unlike Windows, the Mac OS uses three different types of information to determine which application is associated to a particular file. This includes not only the type and extension of a file but also, more importantly, the creator code.

Modifying this information allows you to change the program associated with a particular file - although this is normally a tricky task if you don't know what you're doing.

Thankfully, TypeShuffler makes it easy to manipulate this information in order to change the application that opens a file. In fact, it's as simple as dragging and dropping a file onto the program icon then altering the creator code information by hand.

Changes

  • Fixed compatibility problem with 10.6 and drag and drop.

TypeShuffler is a drag and drop utility that allows you to change the creator code, file type, and file extension of files. It also provides you with a configurable database of creator codes so that you can quickly change files to your preferred codes, types, and extensions.
