  2. Replace Notepad in Windows 10 1909 with Dark Notepad

    I don't find anything from Dark Notepad authors on how to set it as Default. So I would contact them through the link which appear at the bottom of their Download page in MS Store app, which every app maker must provide to support their app. Let them know
    you're airing this in Microsoft Community forums where we are waiting to hear how they suggest to do this.

    There is another Notepad++ app here that gives some steps which it provides to replace the default in it's Settings:

    If your Dark Notepad app doesn't have similar then toward the end of that tutorial there is a registry edit to replace the Notepad default you can try.

    Make sure to set a System Restore point first so you can go back if necessary:

    Replace Notepad in Windows 10 1909 with Dark Notepad

    I have tried each of your "solutions" and NONE of them work. Going to Settings > Apps > Default Apps yields nothing of help. Choosing by Default By File Type does not work either when I select the file type "TXT" Dark Notepad is not listed. If I tried
    file type "BAT" I clicked the button "Choose a default", the only option was look for an app in the Microsoft Store where Dark Notepad IS NOT LISTED, the same as it was with "TXT".

    Even tried "If that fails uninstall Notepad here:

    https://winaero.com/blog/install-or-uninstall-n..."

    which does not work as there is NO LISTING for notepad.
