- SSMS wont give up file associations 1 answer
After installing Sublime Text on Windows 10, I can not change the default application for files with the
.txt extension anymore.
Context Menu > Open With… > Choose Default Program, I can select Sublime in the dialog and check "Always use this application." The file is opened once with the chosen application, but the default remains as the Windows Editor.
In the Windows Settings, I am also able to select Sublime in the dialog for
.txt files, but the file type remains assigned to the Editor.
Things that did not help:
- Checking the registry key in
- Uninstalling Sublime Text
Using ftype worked, but is unwieldy.
What exactly could have broken the standard file type association dialog? Is it repairable?
