    Hi guys, I think this is not about Microsoft Edge. I already have the default programs that I chose working well. Opening videos (VLC), images (LibreOffice Draw) and documents but when I use the Task Scheduler to open that files, Windows still shows the pop up asking me "How do you want to open this file?" It's very frustrating.

    Please post a screenshot of the action you have specified in the scheduler. You've probably set it up the wrong way, assuming you can simply specify the file you want to be opened. I recall someone else doing that.

    Yes, as I thought- you can't just put a non-executable file there as the action.
    Note what it says here:

    - start a program (i.e. not an mp4 e.g.)

    You can do sthg like

    And if you want to make sure it opens your default player, specify explorer rather than D:\......winamp.exe
