I have been using an application called Default Programs Editor to adjust the default program to open with when a file is opened and also the icon. I have done this once for Windows 10. However, it seems that after the latest update (which seems to be on a daily basis? ), all those associations were overwritten with the garbage Windows 10 applications.

I use this mainly for sound & video files, which I like to use VideoLan for the association, and a few nice icons for the file type. It would not be bad at all if somehow I could have that application (or some other like it) save the associations such that redoing everything would be easy, but that is not the case, so changing all the associations is a real pain that I really don't want to have to do every time Windows updates.
