    Why does my OS want to open all URL files with the same program?


    I don't know what happened but my OS wants to open all URL file types with the same program, even after I reset the associations back to default with this: Restore Default File Type Associations in Windows 10 For example Runescape launcher, Steam game shortcuts, and Bethesda game shortcuts are all URL file shortcuts; I have Runescape launcher set to open with Runescape launcher so my OS sets all the other game URL shortcuts to open with Runescape launcher. How do I make my OS allow me to set what URLs are opened with independently?

    Windows Version: 1809 (OS Build 17763.1039)

    Welcome to the forum. what opens a URL is what file type it is like html, htm php , javascript et etc each can have a different program open them so htm may open with Edge and html may open with Firfox

    I don't think it's a Runescape launcher problem. When I change Fallout 76 url file to open with Fallout 76, the OS makes everything else default open with Fallout 76.
