    File Association question

    I recently wanted to look inside a .db file (which was a "system" file), so I chose to "open with" Notepad. However, I neglected to uncheck the box that said "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file".
    Now, of course, all my .db files are associated with Notepad. I would like to break this association, and return the files to their associations to their defaults, but I can't seem to find a way to do that.
    Any ideas?

    Hi I'm running W10! Mine is also showing unknown! You have to change it if you want some thing different! Hi I have never tried to change this. I've never had a reason to!!

    Exactly my question, Roland.

    In any event, I dropped back to my last restore point (only 4 days ago), so problem resolved.

    Thanks for the suggestions, Holdem.-
