How do you associate the .exe file extension with a program in Windows?
I wanted to look at a shortcut or .exe file (not sure which, unfortunately) in Notepad, so I opened it right up (Open with ...).
Then I realized that I must have told the computer to always open such files with Notepad ... now everything is screwed up. Can't even figure out how to open the shell.
How do I undo this? Or have I already made a permanent change?
Similar to this question, but I'm not a power user, so I don't understand the answers. I thought this could be done through the control panel.
To make it more difficult, I'm on a french computer, and using Windows 7 (I think) which I'm not familiar with (always used XP).
