What happens when you download a file from the Internet?
On the AmigaOS, such information is kept in the icon file. You can
click on the icon and press Amiga-I to edit it.
(BTW, why, being Win the only broken OS when it comes to file
types, do people tend to follow it --- even on Linux? The whole
world seems to rely on file extensions... This is likely the
result of people never having seen anything except Win... I wonder
how come there's only so few people really realizing the
(cultural) disaster MS has created...)
