    How do I revert back to default .sav application


    Hello! *Smile

    As I was curious about what a game save file looks like, I tried to opened a .sav file (backup of the actual save file of course) with the Notepad.

    Unfortunately, I forgot to tick off "set default app". Now, all of the .sav files (for all my games that use this format) are set to Notepad.

    After testing a few games a little, it looks like they still detect the saves fine, and saving works too. But I fear that all of the .sav files being converted to Notepad may produce an unexpected problem in the future (e.g. some progress data not being recognized and saved in the Notepad format). Maybe I'm just being paranoid.

    That is why I'd rather make all these .sav files revert back to their original application. Unfortunately, after trying to associate a file type via the Control Panel, Windows doesn't seem to have it. I've read about using regedit and deleting values, but I fear it'll cause more harm than good.

    Can someone please tell me a solution? Thank you.

    EDIT: The icon was blank before I associated it.

    :)

    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 How do I revert back to default .sav application :) 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.
