    Hello @tomseys, :)

    I have added "bin" to Option Two to help.

    That worked great. Thanks Brink!

    Variation on a theme


    Reading this article has given me hope to solve an issue I have.

    At work we have a software program that several times a day will erase my default program associations for : Http, https, PDF, jpeg, mailto. So several times a day I need to manually re associate firefox, paint, adobe reader, outlook. It is annoying. I think the program that does it is Goldmine as it interacts with all those file formats. I was recently upgraded to win 10 and that is when these issues started. I assume it is rewriting it self to default those items while it interacts with them and then writes back the original defaults. But i assume changes to the win10 registry system have made the re write portion of the software incorrect. Gold mine has yet no update to this version that we use and I can not update the version.

    So could you supply a reg file that would re associate all these at once:
    firefox, paint, adobe reader, outlook, mailto:

    Hello cuetipper,

    I'm not aware of a way to backup and restore file associations for the current user in Windows 10 since "Users Choice" is hash protected.

    You might check to see if the program may have settings you can change to prevent it from making itself the default app.

    All here, please see the following. Has been a major lifesaver for me to solve the default programs fiasco, at least for now:

    Phew! If not for this fellow I'd continue to be very, very upset, as all of you are. And rightly so.

    Going crazy


    Hi

    been going crazy after accidentally associating config file with notepad.
    the file is AdsbFilter.exe ( a data sharing script) and instead of opening the batch file and editing it in notepad, I opened the exe in notepad.Now it always opens in notepad and I cant change it with "open with"

    Tried the .exe download, which downloaded and successfully entered into the registry (without any errors), but the file association is still notepad, even after a system restart.

    Using windows 10 and now pulling my hair out as I try and get it sorted. Even tried manually looking through he regedit, but to no avail...

    help........

    Hello David, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    If you like, you might see if doing a system restore using a restore point dated before this change was made to undo it.
