How To Associate A File Extension In Windows 10

by bill - 2022-01-24 ( education / tech / computers / software )

QUESTION:

I installed a program call Audacious which I want to be the default for .wav files. When I go in Settings and try to change it from the current default my only choice is to get a program from the Microsoft Store. When I try to do that, Audacious doesn't come up as any kind of option. How do you change default programs in Windows 10?

ANSWER:

It's called Audacity.  And they make it very difficult for "oddball" apps, but here's what you do:

  • Right-click on any WAV file
  • Select “Choose another app”
  • Click “More apps” (they try to hide that)

  • Then “Look for another app on this PC” and browse to that Audacity folder and file (C:\Program Files\Audacity\Audacity.exe)
  • Then you select Audacity from the new list that comes up and check the box “Always use this program” for that file extension.
