File Associations and Windows 10
I have a user running Windows 10 build 1607 with N++ v7.2.2 32-bit. He registers .TXT file extension for N++ but when he exits and relaunches N++, the association is not retained.
However, if he launches N++ as administrator, the file extension is registered successfully.
Is there a solution for this? As a workaround, I installed this tool that fools Windows into launching N++ when it thinks it is launching Notepad, so this gets around the file association issue.
what about using windows default apps applet where you can define
which program should be the default for which files?
