Many of my file extensions are not pointing to the programs I need them to point. For example I create script files that are used by AutoCAD. The script file has an extension of .scr that I use a text editor program like Notepad to create it. When I upgraded to Windows 10 the .scr extension was set to open using the AutoCAD Script Editor. I tried to change the default program using a right click "Open With". However the "Open With" option was not available for this file type. I then tried: Right click on Start > Control Panel > Programs > Default Programs > Associate a file type or protocol with a program. I clicked on the .scr extension, clicked "Change Program" and it would not change. The only way I could get the file association to not be "AutoCAD Script Editor" was to Right click on Start > Run > regedit and delete all occurrences of the key .scr. After this I was able right click on the file and use "Open" to associate the file to Notepad. This worked, however, I think I'm missing a step. The "Open with" option is not available when I right click the file, like it is for other files. I would like to know what step I missed to get "Open with in the right click options.
Also, many of the file extensions indicate "Unknown application" so I suspect this issue may be affecting over 350 file extensions. Does Microsoft have a fix to fix all these "Unknown application" issues?
