I usually use NotePad++ as my default text editor. I am using Windows 10, and for example I like to set .config files to open using NotePad++. Usually, in other version of windows you would click on Open with... and choose. While I do have the Open with... option, it only allows me to select a few applications, or an option to Choose from store, which doesn't allow me to select Notepad++. Is there any way to get the usual selection for any application back?


Beneath Choose from store you should have More apps and then Look for another app on this PC

Just try to scroll down.


Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Default Programs\Associate a file type or protocol with a program .cfg

Look for another app on this PC navigate to notepad++ location
