    CMD Stuck in Unicode

    I'm editing this as I 'solved' the first issue I had and found the underlying issue (which I'm not sure how to solve):

    Some instances of cmd (if I run a batch script or right click > Open command window here) are set to unicode (Active code page: 65001), which causes problems for some programs I use. I can change it back to default with chcp 850, which works, but whenever I close the cmd window, it resets to unicode again. If I open cmd through run > cmd however, it is defaulting to 850 as it should however.

    Through google I checked [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Command Processor\Autorun], and [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Nls\CodePage\OEMCP] to see if the chcp setting is being overridden in either of those locations, but it's not.


    was the offending entry *Smile.

  2. Windows 10 cmd is set to autorun, so my PC tells me. How do I change it back?

    I used the cmd prompt to check a micro SD memory card. It got stuck and I had to do a hard power off to exit cmd. Now I get a message that cmd is set to autorun. How do I change it back?
