    Can't make zip file association


    In some magical way that Windows has, my zip files have become associated with Photoshop??????????

    I cannot figuer out how to assign a zip association. Though there's a list of probably 50 .z## file types which i have NONE. There is no .zip association which i have many.

    How do i correct this?

    I'm sorry but i will not be back for 4 hours but will check this forum immediately on my return.

    :)

    Associating zip files with win 10

    I am having difficulties with windows recognizing zip files it is associating zip files with some other program. I want to have it associate zip files with the windows 10 file extractor. How do I get the files to associate properly?

    Can't make zip file association

    File is supposed to be a Zip file, but it is being read as a pdf

    Hi Nick,

    The reason why your .zip files are read as .pdf file is because of incorrect file association.

    To resolve this issue, follow the steps below:

    • Click Start, click the Settings button, click
      Apps, and then click Default apps.
    • Scroll to the bottom and click the link to Choose default apps by file type.
    • Scroll down to .zip and click the program listed in the right column.
    • Click your preferred zip program to select it and then close the open window.

    Let us know if you need anything else.
