Windows 10: Batch files default to being opened in editor rather than executed

    Batch files default to being opened in editor rather than executed


    This is on Windows 10 x64 creators edition. Iíve created a batch file and placed it in C:\Users\Nick\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Start-up, but every time I start the machine and login, I find that instead of the batch file getting executed, it opens in Notepad++. Same thing happens when I double-click a batch file in Windows Explorer. How do I change the file association so that batch files get executed. By design, Windows doesnít show the Open With menu option for executable files (.bat, .cmd, .exe, etc) when you right-click on them, nor does it show the Change button to allow you to change the default program in the right-click file properties for executable files, so I canít change the properties that way.
