Windows 10: Restore Default File Type Associations in Windows 10
I forgot to reply back.
Thank you again for your assistance,
Great news. You're most welcome.
I changed the default browser from Edge to Opera and then I I imported "http.reg" and "url.reg". It didn't work. Default browser remains Opera. How do I change HTM, HTML, URL, etc., file association by using only registry in Windows 10?
Hello XP1, and welcome to Ten Forums.
URL is associated to your current default browser by default.
I've added HTM and HTML to help. Their defaults is Microsoft Edge.
Hi, I've just installed Notepad++ and accidentally associated .cmd to it and after using .reg file provided for .cmd files and merging it in a administrator and ensuring that changed have been written to registry I restarted the win 10 expecting everything to be fixed but nope that is not the case ...
EDIT: nvm, I searched for some more .cmd in registry, found and deleted in "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Roaming\OpenWith\FileExts\.cmd" and everything returned to normal.
I suggest adding the action of removing "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Roaming\OpenWith\FileExts\.cmd\UserChoice" at the very least to your .reg file

Hello razinal, and welcome to Ten Forums.
In that case, you could also do a system restore using a restore point dated before this happened to quickly fix it.
System Restore Windows 10
yeah..., I couldn't do that because apparently System Restore wasn't ON until now . But I turned it ON from now on.
anyhow my problem is solved but thanks anyway.
Great news. Did the .reg file for CMD kick in for you?
That's right,I searched for '.cmd' in registry, found and deleted "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Roaming\OpenWith\FileExts\.cmd" and everything returned to normal.
how about adding the action of removing "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Roaming\OpenWith\FileExts\.cmd\UserChoice" to your .reg file
Thank you. Updated.

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.

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....
