The "creator" 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...)
