Windows Central Question

When I try to change the default program for a file type, I only get a few options, I have lost the "other programs" button so I can choose something not listed. In one case I only get the current program and "find one in the Store"!

Open "Default Apps" and "Reset all default apps". And now restart your pc. This is a simple trick but mostly works.

Try system file checker also.
Open "PowerShell" as admin and write "sfc /scannow" hit enter and on completion restart your computer.

Hoping your problem will be solved.

if problem persists then let me know because further work around will be associated to registry editing.
