Really hoping someone can help me. My son has accidentally changed the default so now all of my applications try to open with Windows Explorer. I've spent the last hour looking for a fix on the net and am stuck.
I can't use regedit - it won't open as it is trying to open with Windows Explorer. It doesn't give me an "open with" option and I wouldn't know what to use if it did.
I have tried opening each application and changing the default, but I'm not that tech and don't know which extensions or programmes I should use for everything.
I've seen sites where you can download a fix for the extension type to reset it, but again I wouldn't know where to start or which extension I should use for which programme.
System restore also fails to start - presumably because it's trying to open with the wrong programme.
Hoping someone can help.
