Changing your default programs in Windows is a straightforward process that can be easily completed in a few steps. Here are the steps you need to take to change your default programs in Windows.
Step #1: Open the Control Panel.
Open the Start menu, then type “Control Panel” and select it from the search results.
Step #2: Select Default Programs.
Once you have opened the Control Panel, select “Default Programs”. You can also access this by typing “Default Programs” into the search bar.
Step #3: Select Set Your Default Programs.
You will now see a list of all the programs installed on your computer. Click on “Set Your Default Programs”.
Step #4: Select the programs you wish to change.
In the Set Default Programs window, you will see a list of all the programs installed on your computer. Select each of the programs you want to change and click “Set this program as the default”.
Step #5: Confirm your changes.
After clicking “Set this program as the default” for each of the programs, click “OK” to confirm your changes.
Once you have followed these steps, you should find that your default programs have been changed successfully. If you wish to change them back to the original settings, simply follow the same steps, but select the original programs instead of the new ones.
