You shouldn't. It's a wonderful program, you just need to get used
to the way it works

Hey, you're talking about AmigaOS Recognising files by looking at
their suffix is the way Windows does it - and it's lame.

The following condition will recognise AmigaOS executables:

Match $000003F3

All you have to do is: Create a new filetype, use the above condition
and set its "double-click action" to

Workbench: {f}

That should do the trick. I don't have Magellan installed atm, but
I hope this explanation is sufficent.
