    Icons for specific program are not normal


    I use a notation software called Sibelius 7.5. Recently, the files stopped showing their graphic and appear as just a blank piece of paper. Additionally, they do not launch in Sibelius as they should when click on them. I have to manually right click and select "open with Sibelius 7.5". Does anyone know what caused this and how to fix it?

    Thanks.

    Hi, as I understand this it sounds as if Sibelius creates files with a unique extension. You see these files as blank white when viewed in file explorer.

    It sounds as if they have lost their association with Sibelius, so you need to recreate that. You can do that via Open With, for example.

    - and note the various other ways of setting defaults. Default associations cannot be set from within a program.
