Wrongfully assigned a program to open a file but can not chang it back! RRS feed

  • Question

  • I tried to open a file created by Cadence with .ART enxtension by Adobe PDF. Somehow all the files with that extension turned to Adobe logo but with same extension.

    I still can not open all the file. How can we change it back to previous stage?

  • Hi, go to Control Panel\Default Programs, click "Associate a file type or protocol with a specific program". Wait for the list to load, find .art and click "Change program..." and browse for the one you want.

    I'm not sure why Microsoft have made this so hard to find or removed a lot of the features we used to have in this area, probably the usual reason of the new developers didn't know about it...
