    Setting defaults by app

    I need help to understand how do set ALL supported file formats to associated app.
    In Settings > Default Apps > Defaults by app > APP > Manage I get overlong list of file formats, most of them unassociated.
    I don't find any method how to select them all and assign them to this App. In Windows 8.x it worked this way I have detailed list with sorting and multiselect capabilities. That list in Windows 10 is dummy and unable to assign other way than selecting App from drobdown for each format. Is that smarter list from Windows 8 really gone?

    Firefox not showing up in default apps

    Only because your list contained FF . Same list as in Default apps page. You did not have the problem that is treated in this thread.

    I made my desired browser, missing from the list, go into the list by modifying registry entries according to those shown by Kolbicz in blog. You get credit for putting it to our attention.

    Apple Claims Steam Link App Violates App Store Guidelines

    Here's what Valve is contending with:
    App Store Review Guidelines - Apple Developer

    The ones that stand out that may have caught Steam Link:
    So yeah, there's a lot of reasons why Steam Link would get rejected.

    App submissions and approvals is a thing between developer and Apple. Valve intentionally let this information leak probably because Apple's restrictive guidlines will never allow Steam Link to be on the store. Valve is hoping the Steam user base makes a lot of noise so Apple grants Valve and exemption. I doubt it will work. Apple loves control and Steam Link is a portal into the Linux/Windows ecosystem. Even if Steam Link were exclusive to Mac OS, Apple would likely demand Valve use Mac OS's remote desktop features rather than Steam Link.

    I'd be shocked if Apple allows it.
