    Windows 10 keeps resetting my apps


    Hi.

    I'm having a problem with windows 10, it keeps resetting my default apps for watching videos and listening to music.

    I want Windows Media PLayer to be my default app for all of these multimedia files but at least once a day a pop up informs me that there was a problem with one of my default apps and that it has been reset to default.

    Is there anyway to disable Windows from taking this action?

    :)

    Windows 10 keeps resetting default apps

    Facing same problem with Films & TV and groove Music. I have downloaded and configured PotPlayer and set the same as default app. But I regularly see Windows 10 resetting my default apps for no reason. Its really irritating. If I open default apps, then
    it resets too many other files. Really wrong implementation in windows 10.

    The problem continues.

    It appears to be unfixable.

    I guess it's time to give up.

    I get the same on one machine, including various different image files (I want to use Windows Photo Viewer, and not the slow and functionally crippled Photos app, and have edited the registry as per the Tenforums tutorial) and .PDF files, where my viewer of choice is Foxit Reader, and not the very limited viewer in Edge. Every so often a single filetype is switched back to Microsoft's choice, with a toast popup from notifications :

    I feel just like Mr Incredible:

    No matter how many times you save the world, it always manages to get back in jeopardy again. Sometimes I just want it to stay saved! You know, for a little bit? I feel like the maid; I just cleaned up this mess! Can we keep it clean for... for ten minutes!
