    I'm glad that it could help for that.

    Hello Greg,

    I haven't tested this in Windows 10, but it should work the same.

    Edit Context Menu - Change Default Program in Windows
    I'm not sure whether this is the best place to post this, but if an extension you need isn't listed, you can get it listed by right-clicking a file with that extension and selecting "Open with". The rest of the process is probably explained in another tutorial.

    Does anybody know what to do when the "always use this app to open etc." checkbox is missing in the "open with" dialog? I've always re-associated file types in this way. Right-click on the file, "open with", "always use etc." But on my Laptop with a fresh Windows 10 installation, the checkbox is just not there. Why is that?

    Edited to add: Nevermind, it finally worked. I went to Default Apps in the system settings to associate MKV files with Media Player Classic, and now the checkbox shows up too in the "open with" dialog. Of course now I don't need it anymore Just another Windows hiccup.

    ...the DISM command...
    For those of us that are less sophisticated in our technical understanding, or just plain stupid users (buy hey, we fund these operating systems by purchasing them) is there an example of how to use this? I am trying to associate .trec files with Camtasia Studio.

    Interestingly, I have used Windows 10 for a considerable period of time now as well as using Camtasia, but just today, Windows 10 announces to me that it determined some problem with a file association and changed a default. Now, I cannot click on a .trec file and open it. I tried a repair operation on the installed software, with no effect.

    .trec file types do not show up in the "Set Associations" dialog in the control panel.
    Nor does the Camtasia application appear in the "Set Default Programs" dialog, though it does appear in the "Programs and Features" dialog.

    Seems like my next step may need to be to try to uninstall and reinstall, but I get tired of doing that these days with apps and even the OS itself. Windows 10 is certainly NOT for the faint of heart. I am tempted to start dissecting the registry with a comparison against Windows 7 to sort it all out, but I have a day job already.

    Thanks though, I am a big fan of Win 7 and Win 10 tutorials!

    Easiest method I find is to right click on the file .trec in your case and click on the Open With option this should show any programs that have previously been used to open these files and an option to Find an app in the store or choose another app Navigate to the program EXE file you wish to use and select it

    Click image for larger version.

    Thanks but it does not offer me the installed program and only offers me the option to shop the Microsoft Application STORE.

    Oooops! MY BAD, there's a link that allows me to search the PC.
