    Hello MaxPower, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    You should be able to use Open with again to set .module files to open with the program you wanted by default.

    But I don't know what program opens module files by default. I mean I know what program/application opens some of my module files but what if I download new folders in the future which contain module files then wouldn't all those files also be opened with the program/application that I chose? I would just like to get the module files to be assigned to the correct program/application automatically every time and that the original module file icon would be shown instead of the notepad icons that I have now. Oh and I can't choose the "Choose default program..." option from the "Open with..." context menu, when I right click on my module files then the context menu appears and there is an "Open with..." option but it doesn't expand to the menu where I could click on the "Choose default program..." option. When I click on the "Open with..." option then a box appears where it says: "How do you want to open this file?" -> ticked small box "Use this application for all .module files" (when I untick the small box and close it and then open it again the small box is still ticked) -> "Keep using Notepad" -> "More options"
    So basically I don't know what program/application opens .module files by default.


    Thank you for the welcome by the way and thanks for taking the time to share all this information.

    By default there is no association to a program for .module files in Windows.

    If there's a specific program you want to open them with, that would be the program to select. Otherwise, you could unassociate .module files to not have a default for them.

    That unassociate.bat program worked like a charm. Everything's back to normal now. Thank you very much for your help!
