How to remove accidentally set file association

Posted on


I downloaded a zip file and accidentally made it open with Wordpad. How do I change the file association back to the default, with no association at all?


I don’t believe you can set it back to blank at least not from the gui interface. You can change it to something else though. Go to Control Panel/Programs/Default Programs/Set Associations. Click on the extension, and then click “Change program”.
