* Initial Release.
Allows identification and verification of file types using Marco Pontello's TrID. There are times you run across files that either have not extensions or does not open up correctly perhaps due to wrong extension. Usually you can just open up the file in notepad if it's small enough and hope it's a text type file but other times, it's not possible. With TrID, it can help identify the possible file types.
I made this simply because I download many files and also a lot of images. For some reasons, there are sites where I download images that don't save the extensions correctly. Since there are many files that are either jpg or png, I usually have to rely on IrfanView to tell me if an image file has a wrong header compared to its extension. This saves me a bit more time since it saves a lot of clicks and especially if you are using the custom column script, you can sort by file types which makes it easy to select and batch change the extension.
Save TrIDNet.icon (icon file) and TrID.xys file into <xyscripts>.
