Need help with .scm files in Windows 10
My problem is specific, I've tried some advice on other sites and have had no luck thus far.
I have a program I used called GIMP . That is a photo editing software. To install new filter effects, there are files called .scm I place them into Gimps' scripts folder etc. Anyway, I was curious and opened one of the .scm files with notepad , now the .scm files still work, they are still SCM files, the problem is the annoying note pad image associated with them, gets me confused sometimes,
Also, when you press on the .scm files their contents open, I Don't want that to happen. I have tried some suggestions and still have yet to resolve this. How do i revert the notepad file association with Gimp's .scm script files ; in windows 10 ?
Gimp is a free software, and scripts can be found with a internet search. Maybe some one is willing to download a .scm script and recreate the problem in windows 10 by opening the .scm with notepad ; then give me the answer to fix this .
Hello John, and welcome to Ten Forums.
If you like, the .reg file below will unassociate .scm files for you.

I'm sorry that this has not worked. The file association with note pad still exist. I can make a video or talk by voice through Skype even, I just wish I could resolve this .
Did you restart the computer after merging the .reg file?
Yes I restarted two times, and after applying the reg edit two times. I can show a screen share through Skype exactly the problem if it will help . Things like this just urk me.

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....
