Hi, I want to know how I can reset to the default programs for opening a file..
For example, I've got an .sav file from my Halo game folder, and one day I
was just fiddling around with the folders and I accidently clicked it and
chose Adobe Reader as the program.. then I tried WordPad, etc.. - don't know
why I did that. And I don't like it how all my .sav files have the little
WordPad logo on their icons. Also, I want to get rid of the 'recommended
programs' that pops up when you >right-click >"open with..." [the recommended
programs is just all the programs I tried to open the .sav file with... -.- ]
So anyway, how do I make it so its the default (in this case, there isn't a
"Default" but I want it like it was before - i.e. 'unknown application' or
something where after you click it, it asks you to choose a program, etc..
Any help would be much appreciated!!
