    Setting defaults by app

    I need help to understand how do set ALL supported file formats to associated app.
    In Settings > Default Apps > Defaults by app > APP > Manage I get overlong list of file formats, most of them unassociated.
    I don't find any method how to select them all and assign them to this App. In Windows 8.x it worked this way I have detailed list with sorting and multiselect capabilities. That list in Windows 10 is dummy and unable to assign other way than selecting App from drobdown for each format. Is that smarter list from Windows 8 really gone?

    Hello Anakunda, :)

    If you like, you should be able to use Option 6 in the tutorial below to set the app as the default app for all of its supported file types.

    Thanks Bring, option 6 was my situation. Option 7 was what I actually needed. It still works in build in build 1709.
