    Cant set the default app for extensions

    Ignoring Default App Settings


    Mm, not shown in Control Panel, Default Apps, File association list if that's where you were looking..

    Is this one MS is surreptitiously reserving for its own use?
    Notwithstanding which, using Control Panel Default Apps to associate Winrar with all it can handle => .cab associated with Winrar (not restarted yet).
