    .ex4 file default

    How do I change my .ex4 files from adobe default to unknown default. I mistakenly tried to
    open the .ex4 file and all of my .ex4 files now are defaulted to adobe.

    Hello seaspirit, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    If you like, you could download and merge the .reg file below to unassociate .ex4 files for you.

    What happens when I run the unassociated reg?
    Will the Description be Ex4 File and the Current Default be Unknown application?

    Thank you very much. I finally got brave enough to run the reg and it changed the ex4 back like it should have been.
