To create a new file type, click Add File Type, and then see Adding custom file types for further instructions.

You cannot delete pre-defined file types, or delete the file extensions associated with them.
You can, however, add file extensions associated with a pre-defined file type to a custom file type. The file extension is then filtered and logged according to the settings associated with the custom file type. You cannot add the same extension to multiple custom file types.
When you are finished making changes to file type definitions, click OK. Changes are not implemented until you click Save and Deploy.
