That uses to be a system issue. Actually Web Dumper just downloads the files to your hard disk using the original name and extension, your operating system will then set the icon and the associated viewer application automatically. If a wrong viewer is used for your file or a wrong icon is displayed you likely have an extension conflict or the wrong viewer getting associated. You can change the default viewer for a given file, it depends on your operating system:
On Windows, select the file, right click your mouse and select the 'Open With' menu. Select a listed program or select 'Choose Program'. You can then change the default viewer for all the files of this kind checking the 'Always use the selected program to open this kind of file' check box.
On Mac OS X, select the file, right click your mouse and select the 'Open With' menu. Select a listed program or select 'Other'. You can then change the default viewer for all the files of this kind checking the 'Always Open with' check box.

If you are viewing a Web site with your browser and you decide that you would like to make a copy of it on your hard drive, you have to manually save each page as you view it along with embedded pictures, sounds and so on.
This can be a very long and tedious process, and in many cases it's more trouble than it's worth. It doesn't have to be that way, however, as Web Dumper makes this whole process very fast and easy.
With Web Dumper you can download entire Websites off of the Internet, and save them on your hard drive for later offline browsing.
Downloaded Web sites are saved on your hard drive with their directory structure intact. Web Dumper automatically downloads HTML documents along with their embedded pictures, sounds, movies and so on while it screens them to look for any enclosed links to other documents.
Web Dumper lets you select which kinds of file you want to be dumped between more than 60 available standard types, the folder depth level, how links must be processed and if it must re-link your HTML documents for offline browsing.
