    Hello Reece, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    The .SFK file type is not associated to open with a program by default in Windows. What were you wanting to associate it with, or did you want to unassociate it?

    In that case, you can use the link I posted above for "Open with" to set .sdk files to always open with WMP.

    Then it sounds like the file extension was just renamed instead of it being properly converted to the other format.

    module file


    Can anyone please tell me how to change a module file back to its default settings? I used a notepad to open a module file and it changed all the module files so that they can now be always opened with notepad. But interestingly the file extension didn't change, the file extension is still module file not text file, but in place of the module file icon that was before now there are notepad icons. I tried to delete the notepad.exe from the regedit HKEY_CURRENT_USER - .module - openwithlist folder several times to try to change the module files back to default but the notepad.exe keeps reappearing in the openwithlist folder even after I've deleted it. Any kind of advice would be welcome.
