Windows 10 receives a new update that resets default applicationsThis is not the first time this has happened and it probably won't affect all users. Thus, if we see that it asks us again with which app it should open some type of file, it is due to the update KB3135173
The cumulative update KB3135173 arrived last Tuesday and is the culprit for resetting default application preferences. The associations of apps with photo, audio, video and document files change for many users after restarting the operating system.
Of course, Microsoft apps are set to open audio files, images, videos, etc.
Also, some users have tried to restore these preferences and received an error, so their only option was to restore the system or set the default apps manually again Windows 10.
Set default apps in Windows 10
To reconfigure the default applications in Windows we must perform the following steps:
- Open the menu Home
- Enter the option Settings
- Then click on System
- In the left menu we access Default applications
- Click on each item to change the app and it will give us a choice among the available ones
This way will be the only thing we can do for now until we see that Microsoft fixes that problem that resets default apps in Windows 10 through the KB3135173 update. As we say, luckily it does not seem to affect all users of the new operating system.
