Windows 10: Restore Default File Type Associations in Windows 10
I don't know how to make a screenshot but the location is here...
I go This PC>Local Disk C:> Windows and then select "regedit" from list and then....
The Unassociate_SCN.reg would delete that registry key for you if you would like to merge it again.
Ok so I merged it again and it deleted the scn extension completely from the registry. Now I've also noticed some suspicious .com registry entries with lots of numbers behind them?
What the hell is that?^
Are these fixes official? Why doesn't Microsoft have something to fix this crap? All it took was one accidental click in the wrong box and I'm wasting hours of my life and f--king up my computer trying to fix it?
I wouldn't worry about the .com stuff.
Are you .scn files ok now?
If not, then you could do a system restore using a restore point dated before you changed them by mistake to undo and fix it.

Hello. Desperately in need of some help. I inadvertently changed all my .TAX files so that they now try to open with Adobe Acrobat (which of course cannot open them).
Previously they were "unknown application".
I have searched and tried other suggestions. Could someone please help as to how I change .TAX back to "unknown"?
Hello hollies, and welcome to Ten Forums.
The .reg file below will unassociate .tax files for you.
Thank you for the welcome and thank you very much for the fix.
Amazingly quick response.
I really do appreciate it
I notice that you have added a number of new files to this tutorial. Can one assume that the zip file is updated everytime you add a new routine to the list?
The main list of files (the table) does not show some of the new additions.
The ZIP file will have all the ones listed in the tutorial for the first post. The others in the thread are just to unassociate file types not in Windows by default.
Once I have opened pdf.reg and imported it's values to the register I will get Microsoft Edge to open .pdf files. My goal is to restore the default menu when opening .pdf files so I can choose what to do. This menu I mean:
It's from the factory settings. I also tried this:
Both methods do not seem to restore the menu to popup like Windows 10 did in the beginning after I installed Windows 10. What is the final solution for this?
In the meantime, thank you so much for your attention and participation.

You can use the default application association-servicing commands to import, export, list, and remove the settings that specify which application opens a file...
I'm used to working with quite a few libraries in W8.1 and would like file explorer in W10 to directly go to the libraries view if possible rather than the 'quick access' screen.
Can it be done ?
I unpinned a lot of the apps from the Start menu, now I'd like to restore it to it's installation default.
Any way to do this?
I'm currently using Windows 7 and am excited about the roll out of Windows 10.
I skipped Windows 8 because of all the bad reviews.
I will be keeping my Windows 7 computer (which is flawless) and buying a brand new machine with Windows 10 as soon...
Is it possible to choose a default location/folder to open when opening File Explorer from the task bar? Default is that it opens Quick access. I use OneDrive a lot, and would really like to see that I could set that to open that location....
