How to examine File Extensions and File Associations in Windows 7

The file extensions for applications are known as file associations. Each of the extensions on a System File has a file association that you can view at a command prompt by typing the assoc command followed by the extensions. For example:
•    assoc .doc

The File type for the file extension is specified by each file association in turn. You can view this at the Command Prompt just by typing the ftype followed by the file association. For example.
•   ftype Word.Document.8

Even though the Assoc and Ftype are internal commands for the command shell (cmd.exe), you can use the command from the Windows PowerShell prompt. If you want to use the Assoc command in the PowerShell, enter cmd /c assoc followed by the extension. For example.
•   cmd /c assoc .doc

Look at the following command.
•    cmd /c ftype Word.Document.8

If you want to use the Ftype command in PowerShell, just enter the cmd / ftype followed by the profile as shown in the above command.

New Micro battery, power packed for high performance

For a size of a few millimetres, the new micro-batteries are powerful enough to jump start a car battery and then quickly charge the cell phone. Researchers from the University of Illinois have developed the micro batteries which can be used to drive compact electronic devices and new applications for radio communications. The micro batteries are so good that they can even out power the super capacitors. The results were published in ‘Nature Communications’ in the April 16 issue. The micro batteries have energy and power and with the researchers tweaking the structure of the micro batteries a little bit, its use can be for wide range applications. The high performance of the micro battery is based on its 3-dimensional micro-structure. Based on the design of fast charging cathode by Professor Paul Braun’s group, researchers developed the matching anode and integrated it with the fast charging cathode at a micro-scale and made a complete battery with high performance. These batteries cou
