    I have an HP computer that uses the file extension *.jse with a significant number of help files and applications such as updates. On my computer, files with that extension are displayed as ordinary text files, and I obviously have an incorrect file association for the file type. It is a simple problem, for which the answer has been embarrassingly difficult to find. I daresay there is an HP user or two in the Lounge who might know the correct association, and I would be grateful for any help.

    Thanks in advance,

    What do the contents look like? Text, script code, unintelligible?

    According to a Google search, they are JScript Encoded files, and they can be run by Microsoft Windows Based Script Host (C:\WINDOWS\System32\WScript.exe)
