  1. Setting the default application with two versions on the machine?


    I have both Sketchup 2019 and 2020 0n my machine. However, 2019 is the default application listed for the .skp files. Of course I get and error when it tries to open a file created in the newer 2020. I tried setting the default to 2020 through the file type properties but no go. Is there another way to set this?

    Microsoft Windows 10 Pro
    Version10.0.19041 Build 19041

    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 Setting the default application with two versions on the machine? :) 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.

    Wrong Office version set as default

    Have you tried Start>Settings>Apps>Choose default applications? If that only offers one (wrong or unknown) version of Word, find a docx file in explorer, rt-click and select 'open with...', then select 'more apps', and if Word 365 is not in the list, try 'look for another app' at the bottom of the list: go find Word365, wherever it may be found (I don't have it).

    Unable to set default browser

    • Does this issue happens while you try to set other browser as default too or is it specific to specific browser?

    Any browser.

    Already did the steps you suggested. It's some kind of bug where it's impossible to set a default browser at all.

    I heard elsewhere from one other user
    that it seems to be a problem with upgrading to 10 on the SP3. Sounds very specifc.
