    How to Add a Program to "Open With" in Windows 10


    Hi everybody,

    I use Windows 10 and would like to once Explorer.exe allows me to choose the program that I want to open the .iso files.
    I would like added "Open with" "VLC media player" for the .iso file in addition to programs that are already in the list.







    Thanks by advance and have a nice day !

    Don't know why you want VLC to open an iso file, but since you ask......................

    This method applies to all files :
    Right click at the iso file > click Choose another app > if you don't see VLC, click More aopps > scroll down to locate VLC............

    Because VLC can play Video ISO file.

    In addition, you can open VLC then drag and drop the ISO Video onto it.
