    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
