- Enter the correctly spelled MIME string you wish to set up.
- Enter a list of comma-separated file extensions to associate with the file type, for example "jpeg, jpg, jpe".
- Select the action Opera should take when encountering this file type.

|Open with Opera||Opera can show text, markup languages, and images.|
|Save to disk||
|Open with default application||Let your operating system decide which program to use when opening files of this file type.|
|Open with other application||Use a different application than the one your operating system is set to use by default.You can pass the file address directly to the application (useful with streaming multimedia)|
|Use plug-in||Use a plug-in to view the file|
Tip: Type in the "Quick find" field to find the file type you want to edit.
Note: Be careful when editing file types. Opera depends on certain file types in order to work properly.

When using the "Save to download folder" option, files are downloaded to this directory without asking for confirmation.
