Yes. Start the Registry Editor, search for the extension .qvw and the text you want to change and modify it. This link may be useful to you: Change file type descriptions in Windows 7 - Super User

Or use a freeware tool to edit file extensions, their program assignments and descriptions.

Re: Document type seen as Qlikview 7.0 document

Windows recognizes documents based on their extension (.qvw), not based on their content. So it really doesn't matter what Windows puts there. And moreover, you can easily change the description in Windows if you don't like it and want to display QlikView 12 Document. Although that's probably not true either for all documents on your HD.

AFAIK the file format of a .qvw file hasn't changed since v7. So this description still applies.

Hi ,

To show or hide file name extensions

  1. Open Folder Options by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, and then clicking Folder Options.
  2. Click the View tab, and then, under Advanced settings, do one of the following:
    • To show file name extensions, clear the Hide extensions for known file types check box, and then click OK.
    • To hide file name extensions, select the Hide extensions for known file types check box, and then click OK.
