Windows 10: Program I would like to use as default not listed

    Program I would like to use as default not listed


    I have a program I would like to use for photos, PDFs, jpegs, tifs and pngs called "BlueBeam". When I try to use this program as a default, Windows will not list it or even give me an opportunity to search my hardware and select it. How do I fix that ?

    Assuming your C: drive is your boot/Windows drive and assuming the program has been installed and assuming it runs on Win10, have you looked in C:\Program Files or C:\Program Files (x86) to see if it is listed there? The first Folder is for 64-bit programs and the second is for 32-bit programs installed on the 64-bit version of Windows. If having only C:\Program Files it is the 32-bit version of Windows.

    Use Control Panel, Default Programs, Associate a file type......, double click on extension you want to associate.

    Then at popup, click on more apps, scroll down to 'look for another app on this pc' and then you should be able to navigate to the bluebeam executable (check properties on desktop icon to find exact name and location if not sure).
