File Associations Manager – a PolicyPak feature

Automatically deploy file associations to the correct applications without user interaction. Users sometimes select the incorrect applications to manage files with. This can lead to background processes running that shouldn’t, over utilization of CPU, and other unforeseen computer hangs. File Associations Manager simplifies the deployment of file to app associations.

Quickly map which application to open with which file type. Deploy your software however you do today (SCCM, Intune, etc.) 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.
