Ever since I downloaded 7zip, and even after I uninstalled it, is that all my zip files are downloaded as 7z files. How in the world can I stop this?! I have been looking for answers for about a month in my spare time and the closest I can find to useful advice is How to stop 7-Zip from automatically downloading and opening a zip file in Chrome? which is not even the same problem. Any help, ideas, notions, educated guesses, or anything else you have that might enable me to have zip files again would be appreciated sooooo much.
So far I have:
- Used a reg file to recreate the association to zip files after 7zip deleted them
- Tried to set a zip file's default opener to Windows Explorer (it already was there)
- Using other browsers
- Requiring me to select where to save the file
- Reinstalling 7zip and using the settings to ignore zip files
Im using Chrome and Firefox and Windows 8.1
But every time the zip file I click on is listed as a 7z file before the download even begins.
