    Hello Ichangetheworld, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    I'm sorry, but .srt files do not have an association by default in Windows 8/8.1. What were you needing to do for them?

    They are subtitles. They need to be in the same directory as your film. In this case VLC (or other players) will automatically use them.

    I'm sorry for the delay. I have been having Internet problems. For some reason, VLC couldn't read my subtitles for one of my movies. I opened it in WordPad to see if the file was unreadable or something. I have tried different movies with .srt subtitles and they won't play either. If they are hard coded on the file (I think that is the right term?) it works fine, but .srt doesn't work at all. I might just have to reinstall VLC or something. Sorry for your time and thank you both.

    Hello Sonteryo, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    The .key file type does not have an association by default in Windows.

    If you wanted to assign a program to open .key files by default, then you could do so in Default Programs below.
    If you wanted to unassociate .key files to not have a default program, then you could try the tutorial below to do so.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    In that case, see if downloading and merging the .reg file I attached below may help. It will delete the key below to remove what you set as the default program by mistake.

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts\.key]
    Unassociate_Key.reg

    The code box in my post above is the contents of the .reg file. It's what is deleted in your registry that contains what you selected by using "Open with".
