Well folks, I’m running out of ways to cleverly introduce the fact that your current build of Windows 10 may have another nasty bug. While it’s not as severe as having your documents wiped out or existence, it can still be classified as very annoying for users. That’s because the bug in question breaks file associations, preventing certain file types from opening with the default programs you choose. example, not being able to associate Adobe Photoshop with image files, Notepad ++ with text files or VLC with .mp4 files.

This was brought to my attention courtesy of Chris Hoffman at How-To Geek but Check out this:

” This is a known bug and has almost certainly been reported in the Feedback Hub, so Microsoft should be aware and working on a fix The next regular monthly cumulative update is exp ected on Tuesday 12 June, so I’d expect the fix then. ” ~ via TenForum s, May 2018 .

That forum post was from May 2018, and

has been reported in the Feedback Hub multiple times according to Bleeping Computer . Men her vi er i november, og problemet fortsetter. In fact, it has been around in various forms since 2015. Yes, 2015 .

It seems to be somewhat erratic, but in general users find that:

  • Default app preferences are not saved when choosing ” Open With ” and enabling ” Always use this app “
  • They can not choose default values ​​by app
  • They can not choose defaults by file type

Here’s a small sampling of complaints from the Windows 10 subreddit:

” Running W10 1803 on 2 different PCs that have both developed the same problem – the ” open with ” menu that lets you change file associations does not do anything anymore. ” ~ via Reddit


“[…] & nbsp; all i want to make mp3 files open with the media player of my choice and not windows media player PS: The account i’m in has administrative rights. And you have formatted my PC completely to try and solve this problem, yet it persisted. ” ~ via Reddit


” When trying to open .mkv and .mp4 files with MPC-HC it does not remember it as the default application. Instead it always opens in the default Windows 10 video player. I’ve googled this and found people offering solutions of changing the setting in the file association panel, and changing registry settings … nothing is working. This is the second install of Windows 10 I’m seeing this on, and this is a fresh install as of last night. ” ~ via Reddit

How-To Geek states that it does not appear to be an issue in Windows 10 machines running version 1809 – the version that was historically drawn ] due to so many show-stopping bugs (Microsoft has yet to reissue this cumulative update originally scheduled for October). Men, jeg har funnet flere klager fra brugere som kører version 1809:

” Jeg har vært med dette problem for en stund. Ég er ekki hægt að úthluta ákveðnar skráargerðir til ákveðinna forrita. This is happening in 1809, decided to rollback (through clean format) to 1803 and I still have the issue. Thinking of going back to 1709 to get rid of it.

Right click on file – & gt; Properties – & gt; Change – does not work.

Setting app – & gt; Apps – & gt; Default Apps – & gt; Select default apps by protocol – does not work.

I would have already switched to Linux if it was not for gaming. ” ~ via Reddit


” I have this on LTSC 2019 so it’s totally in the October update too. There have been several posts about the bug being present in 1809, I guess now they’ve backported it to earlier versions. Enjoy, lol. ” ~ via Reddit

It appears a registry-based workaround is available, but it’s not for the average Windows 10 user and it’s hardly a solution. Du vil behöva execute this for any file type association you want fixed. Here’s a screenshot from StackExchange :

The workaround for fixing your file type associations. Yeesh. StackExchange

This has been an incredibly poor year for Microsoft’s Windows 10 operating system, whether it’s invasive annoyances or system-breaking bugs . Til tross for at Microsoft Millions of Windows Insiders, updates only seem to make things worse – and you know, it’s simply not normal for so many Windows-focused tech sites to advise people on how to delay or avoid Windows Updates.

På et ikke-relatert notat, hvis du er i Windows 10 Pro, kan du kanskje sjekke hvis du har blitt downgraded til Windows 10 Home. . .

And all I can say to people constantly frustrated with Windows 10 is this: I’ve been using Ubuntu Linux for 5 months now and have not even had a minor headache. Is it perfect? No. Is it exponentially more reliable and stable? Absolutely. I’ve been enjoying my PCs again, and I’m going to keep beating this drum because I have low confidence that Windows 10 will be improving anytime soon.

This was brought to my attention courtesy of Chris Hoffman at How-To Geek, but after a bit of research it seems this issue has been lurking for quite some time. Check this out:
