    Hello J, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    Usually, the preview pane will use the same default app to open the file with.

    What file type is this for?

    What is its default app?

    ...and what is the preview pane in File Explorer using?

    Well the problem got it self resolved but not sure why and how.

    File type: pdf
    Default set to Pdf-Xchange and file did and do open properly
    But preview was using Pdf-Architect which I do not want but add to have to get a virtual printer.

    After contacting PDF-Xchange, they sent me an update and now the preview works.

    So not sure if the issue was that
    a) Pdf-Xchange version was not compatible with Win10 or
    b) Win10 assumes that what ever is the last program install for a file type. PDF Architect which I installed last. after the install I had to go to the Default app to reset to PDF-Xchange but the preview remained in PDF-Architect...
    in any case I do not see a mean to even change the preview file type and obviously WIN10 was not doing it according to my settings.

    Could be, but I'm glad to hear it has sorted itself out.
