    Not able to set word as by default for .txt & .text type file

    Hi Ishan

    1

    If Word or Office does need to be repaired, then use these steps:

    Open the Settings App (gear icon on your Start Menu)

    Go to Apps, then scroll down to find Microsoft Office

    Select that and choose Modify - Online Repair

    That is a comprehensive fix

    That should fix any issues with your Office Installation . . .

    2

    To set Word as the default app for txt files:

    Right click any text file and choose Properties

    At the top of the resulting dialog, click Change

    Is Word one of the options available in the list?

    If not:

    Right click a txt file, choose 'Open With' - Choose Another App

    Important - Check the box marked 'Always use this app to open .txt . . .'

    If Word is not in the list, scroll to the bottom and click 'More Apps'

    Again if Word is not in the list, at the bottom, click 'Look for another app on this PC', then navigate to find the Word executable . . .

    How to change default app for file type

    'Open With > Choose another app' has three step, in the first it only offers apps registered for that file type. If you click 'More apps' it lists all registered apps regardless of suitability. Both these steps have the tick-box for 'Always use...' in my 18363.752. The third step, if needed, is 'Look for another app on this PC'. The 'Always use...' must be ticked before taking this step if you want the change to stick. However, WMP appears at the second step.

    For a quick look at a JPG almost anything (including WMP) is more practical than Photos which on my system takes more than ten seconds just to open a photo. The OP is probably not aware that the Windows Photo Viewer is still available in W10, but hidden away. That's my default viewer for JPG.


    Restore Windows Photo Viewer in Windows 10

    And, once enabled, is available in Settings > Apps > Default apps.

    i set the default app by file type of .txt to editor

    Visual Studio 2015 keeps getting standard file association for txt files

    Visual Studio will attempt to repair any broken file associations (those not associated with a valid application) at startup.
    I suggest the following two manipulations.

    • Check if txt is included in VS
      Tools -> Options -> Text Editor -> File Extension,
      and Remove in that case.
    • Go to
      Default Programs -> Associate a file type or protocol with a program -> Choose default apps by file type,
      scroll down to .txt and click, then choose your text editor if it is not already set correctly.

    If these two measures are not enough, then your Visual Studio setup has a problem.
