Adding text to right click "open with"

P: n/a
Hi

I have an application, that when a user double clicks a file (that the
application creates), the application opens. When the user right
clicks a file and selects "Open With", the program icon shows up in
the list but the program name is not there (next to the icon). Does
anyone know how to make sure that not only the program icon shows up
but the program name text as well?

Thanks for your help!!

Double click my computer; tools/folder options/file types - it should be in
there.

Thanks for the reply. What we're looking for is an option in the
Visual Studio installer. We have an application that WE created that
installs but the icon, and not the title of our application, shows up
in the right click "open with" menu. Thanks for the try...anybody
else??
