    Thanks.. ^_^ Yes, K-Lite has been doing that for years.. I used to use CCCP myself for many years...

    But for those who don't use K-Lite (or other such codec packs) but go straight to configure LAV + madVR ..

    Or maybe it if was not multimedia related.. Maybe something about other types of files .. .cpp or .yaml or .arw or .webp or ...

    I think in Win 10, you could set "all the extensions" that X/Y/Z app supported in a single go. I know Win11 doesn't do that anymore, a concious decision on MS' part. But is there some other way that we can do something similar?

    Yes, I know about that. And I can always go to Default Apps choose MPC-HC, or Chrome, or Nitro PDF, or etc etc etc and choose them as default for their supported file types. Or use a codec pack like K-Lite.. Or I can just wait and set the default for any file type I've never used before whenever I've opened it.

    I'm just saying, when you add it up, it takes a lot of clicks.

    Even for Chrome for example to be set as the default browser. Set it for .html, .htm, .svg, .webp, http, https, mailto ..

    Ultimately .. "Microsoft failed to mention why it removed the option to set an app as the default for all supported file types and links, just like before. Even a "select all" option when configuring defaults for an app would be sufficient to resolve the issue."

    So, I'm just wondering if there is an easy (easier) way to select a whole bunch of file types, protocol, etc and set their default app to so-and-so in one go in Win 11.

    I will probably give the group policy default apps xml method a try later and see if that is workable...

    I had tried this method to have the Windows 10 capture tool (and not to have the Capture service, etc ...) But it did not work

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Explorer \ StartPage] "MakeAllAppsDefault" = dword: 000000001
    It doesn't work. Does anyone have a solution ??? Thank you

    we are already changing so much on windows 11, maybe it would have been better to stay on windows 10.
    msft would have been better to take a different path

    I'll be glad when the new LTSC arrives
