    Fix for “An App Default was Reset” Windows 10 Resets File Associations


    I installed Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC (Build 1809). When I download an image file or video file I get this popup that this extension has been reset back to its defaults. Upon checking the default in PC Settings that application is still there so I'm wondering what's this error and how to get rid of it permanently.

    I saw one fix online but they said they only tested this up to Windows 10 v1607

    :)

    Default apps being reset by Windows


    My news item's been moved although this is likely to be recurring and important issue, so I won't bother posting there again.

    See this, referring to KB3135173,
    Windows 10 Forced Update Resets Default Apps To Microsoft Products - Slashdot

    Updategate: Microsoft 'aware' of problem causing app defaults to reset- The Inquirer

    - from which came the suggested registry modification.

    However, it would be better (I think) to uninstall the update, and hide it (see the Tutorial section) as in the article quoted by Seoras (above)

    Default apps being reset by Windows


    Spent plenty of time going through the event log to see what if anything caused the issue with .pdf files. So far I have found nothing.

    Thanks for this link much appreciated.

    The article also talks about another strange issue that I have noticed. The "Open with issue", which also does not list other apps, just the default ones.

    In some cases the option "open with" is not even available when right clicking on a file type.
