    File Associations and default apps Windows 10


    I installed Python 3.7 today and started working with it. When I tried to run a Python program from it's folder, I found the default was set to Notepad, rather than Python. When I tried to change the default program, Python was not listed as an option, even though it is installed. I could go to the MS Store, and reinstall, I guess, but figure there should be another workaround? Also, .pyd extensions do not give me the option to default to Python; all other Python extensions automatically defaulted to Python. I know how to set .pyd to VS or Notepad++, but not how to set to Python. (I'm a code newbie, so I'm probably missing something obvious!)

    :)

    Restore Default File Type Associations in Windows 10  


    Not to pester you, but it is inconvenient to "open with" every single time, and I remain quite perplexed why every other possible file extension appears to be listed in "Settings/System/Default apps/CHOOSE DEFAULT APPS BY FILE TYPE" but not .zip. It has always been possible prior to Windows 10 to associate ANY file extension with a default program. I'm not sure what you mean by ".zip is not listed by default." How else would one permanently associate a program with a file extension? The link I gave you, provided again below, as well as others I could find - indicates that that other people have .zip listed in their file type listings. Have you checked your listings available at location I've specified above? I have ... .yps, .z, .z96... and no .zip. Do you not see a .zip extension either but see essentially all others?

  3. Can a file extension(.flv) be added to Default Program Associations.

    Hi Fred,



    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.



    I understand that you are facing issues associating a particular file extension with a program on Windows 10. I apologize for the inconvenience caused to you.

    To assist you better, please provide the information:

    When you say that "Default Program Associations", are you referring to the list of default applications in default programs settings?



    I want you to be informed that all the file extensions is listed in the default program settings which is displayed under
    Associate a file type or protocol with a program.



    In default program list, all the programs or application will be listed. Then we can select each program as default program for opening a particular file.

    I suggest you to refer to the below steps to make default program for a particular file extension.

    1. Type "Control Panel" without the quotes in search box and click on it.

    2. Click on Programs.

    3. Then click on Default Programs and click on Choose Default for this Programs.

    4. Select .flv file from the list.

    Also you can try other steps to associate the a particular extenstion with the program.

    1. Type "Control Panel" without the quotes in search box and click on it.

    2. Click on Programs.

    3. Then click on Associate a file type or protocol with a program
    and search for .flv extension from the list.

    4. Click on .flv and then click on Change Program.
