Not working on Windows 10

Comment by RebeccaWhit3

Everything works _except _commiting changes you've made using the file extension editor (available as a right-click option).

Not sure if the issue is related to Windows 10 or not.. but it's definitely a deal-breaker. I did encounter similar issues using the program "Types", but only for certain file extensions (e.g. *.URL).

In addition, the official website was last updated on: 03/31/2013 10:47:35.

That said, there's a good chance Vista/XP users can still use it.
However, I would personally look elsewhere - as the "open with" options were limited to what it could automatically detect.
I was only able to choose around 20 options, which honestly seemed totally random.
