  1. 'An app default was reset' revisted


    Today, again, I got several 'An App Default Was Reset' notifications again, after I went thru great length to stop MS from doing this, up and including a rather Draconian registry patch:

    Without turning this into a rant, I wish to express, in the strongest possible terms, that I find Microsoft's position in this totally UNACCEPTABLE. They do not decide which programs I use. Period.

    This passive-aggressive behavior really needs to come to a halt. There are several threads to be found on the Internet; and everywhere you see MS employees playing dumb, pretending they have no idea what's going on. Cut it out! You wrote Windoze 10, so you know full-well what you've been doing.

    I simply never want to see another 'An App Default Was Reset' notification ever again. Isn't there *any* way to stop this horribly invasive behavior?!

    So is this thread closed or is mine no longer a priority question? I know it's only been a day, but there's been nothing since yesterday afternoon.
