    Failed to set default program for a .sai filetype


    Hello,


    I don't know why but every time I set the default program (sai.exe) to open a .sai file, it doesn't applied. The file type is still unknown to windows and need to use "Open with" every time I want to open it.


    I checked the "default program by file type" in the settings in hope of changing how to open .sai directly there, but .sai is not even in the list. What should I do.

    :)

  2. How to set default programs in Windows 10

    How do I set Maple as a default programme when it does not appear in the list of programmes, even though its .exe file appears under Program Files in the directories Maple15 and Maple16.

    Failing that how do I set a default programme for .mw files when this extension does not appear in the list, even thought it is a valid extension for Maple programmes.

  3. How to set default programs in Windows 10

    Hello,



    Thank you for posting on Microsoft Community. We regret the inconvenience caused and will assist you in resolving the issue.



    From your description, I understand that you want to know how to add programs to the default list in Windows 10.



    Before assisting further, I would like to ask you few questions:


    • Did you try adding programs to the default list?

    • If yes, did you get any error code/error message while adding the programs?


    Two conditions must be met for a program to appear in the default list:


    • The program must have registered itself as being capable of handling at least one file type.

    • At least one or the other program must have registered itself of being capable of handling at least one of those same file type(s).


    Method 1: Follow the steps below to set the default programs and check if the issue is resolved.




    • Press Windows logo key on the keyboard, type
      Default programs and select the top most search result.

    • Click on Set your Default programs and select the programs listed in the left side panel of the window to set defaults.

    • Follow the on-screen instructions.

    • Close the window after setting the programs and check if the changes are effective.


    Method 2: If the issue persists, follow the steps below and check if the issue is resolved.




    • Press Windows logo key on the keyboard, type
      Default programs and select the top most search result.

    • Click on Associate a file type or protocol with a program option from the window.

    • Click on the file type or protocol that you want to change and click on
      Change program.

    • Follow the on-screen instructions.

    • Close the window after setting the programs defaults and check if the changes are effective.


    Write to us with the answers to the above questions and the status of the issue on the same post for further assistance. Your reply is most important for us to ensure we assist you accordingly.



    Thank you.

    Failed to set default program for a .sai filetype

    Lost default photo viewer after profile rebuild


    Thanks Brink. I've tried those steps before i started searching Google. After the profile rebuild i don't have the Photo app listed to choose to make it default in either the system settings for default apps or the Open With option.

    I can't even find it doing a search. Seems to have been removed somehow with the profile rebuild, which doesn't make sense.

    Might be helpful to list what i've done Failed to set default program for a .sai filetype :) I've done the open with check, the choose default program in the system menu, tried that in device manager default programs also. I've checked the programs and features Turn windows features on/off and it's not listed there (never thought it was but that was a suggestion), searched the MS Store, it's not listed there either.

    I don't like playing in the registry unless i have defined steps and haven't found anything for this yet, just the Win7 version like in my OP.
