    Can't set default app for java and txt files


    I reset the default apps to Microsoft recommended apps. Now when I try to change the default app for txt files. It is not changing and the logo is also not changing. I tried with java also, but it is not changing. Most of the apps it is changing. Even after changing to sublime it is not changing. Help me!

    Hi Gerald,

    Based on the details that you have provided, certain changes with the default action when clicking a .txt file may be caused by registry modification or other changes made to your PC settings. To help us identify the solution to your concern, we'd like to
    gather additional information. Please answer the following:

    • Have you made any recent changes or applied updates before this issue occurred?
    • Is this only isolated to .txt files or there are other files that don't show the default action?
    • What build and version of Windows 10 are you using?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you tried so far?
    We look forward to your response.

    Can't set default app for java and txt files

    Generating a .txt based file list in Windows 7

    I want to be able to generate a .txt file that lists all the files and folders in a specific folder on my PC, but don't know the name of any programs that do that. Searched on google a bit and came up with this guide, but it's for XP and I can't seem to find some of the folder options to modify the .bat file. Any suggestions? Thanks

    http://www.theeldergeek.com/file_list_generator.htm

    EDIT: The .bat file will do what I want if it is in the folder I want to do it in, but the option I want to add is having the right click option that it shows.
