Setting Default Program/Protocol Associations without Windows Store


  • Hello, we are trying to work with virtualizing Windows 8.1 for our IT staff; and our network administrator has ran into an issue where the VMWare Tools Application is set as the default for Telnet and SSH.

    We have gone into the control panel to try and fix this, but when we choose to change the program the only options we get are Keep using Default Host Application, or Look for an app in the store, the machines have UAC disabled so the store option is out, is there a way to add additional applications to said list?
