    All .exe files opening in Blender, including the command prompt


    I was using Blender for a project, and I tried opening its own file type in it, which is .blend, but it wasn't associated with that application. So I went to a .blend file's properties, and choose the app blender.exe for it to be opened in. Guess what, every program's icon suddenly turns into Blender's. From Chrome, through Total Commander till Steam.


    I tried reseting the default applications, but that didn't do anything. So I tried looking for solutions on my phone, and I came across a method involving the Command prompt. But, guess what, that also tries to open in Blender.

    Another method I found was a registry edit one, in form of a .reg file. What I did was copy that text on my phone, made a .txt out of it, brought it over to my PC via cable because you know, there's no other way, then opened the .txt in Notepad which still works luckily and I saved it as a .reg file on my desktop. So now I have this .reg file containing:


    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts\.exe\UserChoice]

    :)

    command prompt will not open in safe mode with command prompt

    Would I just follow the same steps within safe mode after hooking up to the other system?

    command prompt will not open in safe mode with command prompt

    I am repairing a laptop for a friend and I need to access windows in safe mode and the owner has forgotten the password to the main user. I tried logging on with the administrator profile in safe mode but it is not showing up so I was going to use command prompt in safe mode with command prompt but command prompt will not open when I boot that option. Does anyone have any hints for me to figure this out?

    How can I open an .obj file in Blender

    Hi Joshy

    Setting File Associations in Windows 10 is currently a bit buggy

    Right click an obj file, choose 'Open WIth' - Choose Another App

    IMPORTANT - Check the box marked 'Always use this app to open objx . . .'

    If Blender is not in the list, scroll to the bottom and click 'More Apps'

    Again if Blender is not in the list, at the bottom, click 'Look for another app on this PC', then navigate to find the blender executable and choose that

    That is located here:

    C:/program files (x86)/blender foundation/blender/blender.exe

    That's It, once that is done, you should be able to double click an obj file to open it in Blender . . .
