Windows 10: Can't choose default software / choices won't get saved
Perfect thanks, that was the only one that worked for me
I tried a bunch of different things including a reg update option and also the local vs MS Account stuff but this was the only one that worked. Thanks.
Redstone released with absolutely same problem. Well done Microsoft!
MS plans to remove old control panel completely, once it does, we will not be able to set default apps.
So that's when I buy Apple, I guess.
Oh dear. Will MS ever learn?
I would not be worry just yet. Half of the settings are still not converted to the new format, so it will be a few more years.

I've run into the same problem. However, mine has an added wrinkle. I took the advice from those who were "cured" and went to the alternate route of "Choose Defaults for This Program." Unfortunately, CHROME didn't show up in the list. Firefox was there but no chrome. I've attached pix as supporting doc. This stuff makes me absolutely crazy. Not to mention the Microsoft Edge processes that absolutely take over this machine and I don't even use the program - incredible.
Anyone have any ideas on the Where's my Chrome for defaulting as an app?
I would uninstall & reinstall Chrome for all users.
dalchina - Thanks for the response but that wasn't really what I was looking for. I had already read through most of those responses and tried those fixes, unfortunately, to no avail. My issue was a little different.

So I started changing my desktop backgrounds with my own images, but now, in "Settings", I no longer see the backgrounds that are included with Windows 10, like the blue Windows logo one. They don't show up in the 5 boxes.
This new "Settings"...
