    Default Unable to set default video player any more in Windows 10

    Hi, friends,

    I have been using Windows 10 for years on my desktop. Just weeks ago, I found I am no longer able to choose my own default video player, while other applications are ok. I can freely choose any photo, music, or mail software as default applications. But for video player, I am not allowed to choose anything else except the "Movies & TV", can't even choose windows media player as the default video player, not to say my favorite potplayer. Not sure why.

    I tried different ways to fix it, but to no avail. Is that because of any windows upgrade?

    Any help to choose my default video player in Windows 10 now? Thanks.

    Thanks, but I had tried this, no good either. I can't save the change. Have to wait for the next windows update perhaps. Currently, it's 1703, I think. When will the next update come, in Nov?
