Also, using the recommended method of changing file associations (Settings > System > Default Apps) limits the choice to stuff that someone has deemed appropriate for you. To choose your own, you need to do Control Panel > Programs > Default Programs > Associate a file type or protocol with a specific program, where you get an option to "Look for another App on this PC".

Well, that's half an hour of my life I won't get back... :twisted:
Yes, W10 seems to forget some file associations, but I have found it easier just to fix them as an when they occur. No idea why it does this though.

There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:

1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?

Forbes has a couple of interesting (to me, anyway) articles on this update:

Thanks for those links! I don't understand a word of them, though ...
