Windows 10 changes default application



  • Anyone run into the issue where Windows 10 something bad happened and is changing the default for some app back to it's "default"?

    These registry changes remove these defaults at the user level.

  • How are you using this? Logon script?

    No these are registry entries. It would overwrite or create these entries, to fix the issue described.

    Wtf does that even mean. You can deploy registry changes many ways.
    @IRJ was asking how @Dashrender is doing it.

    I was thinking it was just a double click and deploy. Yes, it could be deployed in many ways, but no need to jump down my throat about it.



  • Yeah I realize it's registry changes. I was just asking how he deploys it. I was thinking logon script since he said he has a problem with it resetting.



  • Whenever I update Adobe Reader (these days using Chocolatey) Windows gives the new slide out error message as follows:

    0_1472576920505_app-crash.png

    It's not really know why Windows thinks there's a problem, but when it does, it resets to the crappy MS Win 10 apps. Applying these changes disables the system's ability to change back to these apps.

    No - I haven't done anything with them yet.

    If anything I think I will put them in my GP.
