    Not able to change default app for Magnet links


    good day i noticed since going to 10 that clicking on magnet links does not open bittorrent. i have rerun windows and still the same problem. in cyberfox i fixed it easily enough, but for chrome and torch no love. i found a couple of things about registry entries but they did not work. i try to assign bittorrent to magnet links in windows but i cannot choose a default app from the system, i only get what you see below which is to "look for an app in the store". there must be a way to fix this so i can pick an app already on my system. thanks in advance for any gelp with this.

    version 1703 build 15063.413

    I restored back to a previous version and it worked fine. Then downloaded the update again and had the same problem. My BitTorrent is up to date. Idk what settings got changed.
