Associate Windows® File Extensions

Updated: 2020-05-20

TaxCycle automatically adds file extensions to Windows as new modules appear. If for some reason it does not do this, you can do it manually from two locations.

Associate File Extensions From Options

  1. From the Start screen, click Options in the blue bar on the left side. If you have a file open, go to the File menu, then click Options.
  2. On the left, expand Files and folders, then click on File Settings.
  3. Click the button to Associate TaxCycle files with Windows®.
