    Changing Default program in Win 10 home


    When going into setting/apps & features/set default by app; I don't see the installed app that I prefer to use; specifically I want to use AVS4YOU media player to auto-play mp4 files and the like. I cant locate it under programs/default to choose it. I am likely missing something here.


    When I right click on mp4 file/send to my installed program does not show up. Other apps like VLC media player do show up.

    Help the confused one please!!!

    :)

    Change How Folders Open By Default (My laptop keeps using CMD)

    Hi,

    Sorry for the delayed response. I suggest you to set File Explorer as the Default program and check if that helps. To do this, refer the steps given below.

    • Open Control Panel.
    • Search for Default Programs.
    • Go to Default Programs.
    • Look for File Explorer towards the left pane and select it.
    • Set this as default program and apply changes.
    • Check if the issue persists.

    Hope this helps.

    how do I change the default program for extracting files

    Hi,

    You can change the default program that's extracting the files by either changing it from the settings or right-clicking on the zipped file and choose which program will open it. We'd like to know which program are you using yo extract the files.

    In the meantime, follow the steps below to change the default program:

    • Right-click on the file you want to extract.
    • Choose Open with and select which program you want to use.
    • In other cases, a new menu will appear when choosing Open with. You can choose "Choose Default Program" from there.

    Change the default programs from the Settings.

    • Go to Settings. Choose Apps then
      Default apps.
    • Select the app or program you want to use as default from the list.

    We'll wait for your response.
