    I'm glad that it could help for that.

    I'm not sure whether this is the best place to post this, but if an extension you need isn't listed, you can get it listed by right-clicking a file with that extension and selecting "Open with". The rest of the process is probably explained in another tutorial.

    Does anybody know what to do when the "always use this app to open etc." checkbox is missing in the "open with" dialog? I've always re-associated file types in this way. Right-click on the file, "open with", "always use etc." But on my Laptop with a fresh Windows 10 installation, the checkbox is just not there. Why is that?

    Edited to add: Nevermind, it finally worked. I went to Default Apps in the system settings to associate MKV files with Media Player Classic, and now the checkbox shows up too in the "open with" dialog. Of course now I don't need it anymore Just another Windows hiccup.
