how to reset defalt programs selection RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey Guys. I have some type of error going on with my computer. I try to open files and it ask which I would like to choose. I also can not see the regular icons that are normally associated with the file. I did something i am not sure what. First I must have changed all of the files to open as one particular one. So then all of the Icons changed to the same one. I deleted the software thinking it would help but I am still unable to change everything back to where it opens the files correctly. I tried to restore from a earlier time but it also ask what type of file I wish to use to open. What should I do? Help

  • Hi,

    I am not sure which Windows version you do use but:

    for Windows Vista or 7 go Start - Defaults Programs

    for Windows XP - Start - Set Programs Access and Defaults

    the tools allow to change either program or file access from where you are able to change association.
