    .cfg extension dissappeared

    It's strange because it worked for some time ago, don't even know when it stopped to associate with 'em.
    The problem is that I get a "open width" prompt every time I want open a .cfg file. Editing/saving etc. works (using Notepad/Notepad++) but I can't see the icon preview (it's blank white) and no automatic start.

    I can't see the .cfg extension in system settings and associate a program with it manually, and I can't even see this extension in a FileTypesMan program. What to do and how could it happen? Can I add this file extension in some way? I've seen there is such ability in FileTypesMan?

    Cannot install Edge extension Translator


    I realize the inconvenience you are experiencing with installing Edge extension translator. I will certainly help you with the issue.

    I would suggest you to follow the steps mentioned below and check if that helps:

    • Open Powershell as admin.
    • Type: "Get-AppxPackage *pocket* | Remove-AppxPackage" without the quotes this will unsintall pocket. You can try skipping step 3.
    • Type: "Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers| Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml”}" without the quotes.

      this will reinstall all stock apps including the Windows Store
    • Now you should be able to install Pocket through the Windows Store.

    Note: Replace *pocket* in step 2 with *extensionname* (example: pocket extension).

    Hope this information helps.

    Please get back to us with an update on the issue, we will be happy to help.
