    Annoying notification


    Hi,

    Everytime I open a file whether its a .mp3 or a .doc file I always get a notification message in the top right corner of the screen stating 'you have new applications that can open this type of file'. Its annoying as it says it for every type of file that I open, everytime I open it.

    I have de-activated tile and toast notifications via group policy editor but it still appears.

    Any help would be really appreciated.

    Thanks a lot.

    Have you tried using the Default Programs control panel?

    Yeah, for example the .mp3 extension has been associated with windows media player but everytime I open a file with that extension, that same notification pops up everytime.

    Have you tried clicking on the notification and setting whatever program using as default? Windows asks this when you open something so you can use different program defaults if you want. Once you set it, it should stop with those files.
