I am periodically getting error messages pop up on Windows 10 along the lines of "an error has caused an app default to be reset". So my custom file associations (e.g. video files open with VLC by default) are reset to the windows default "films and tv". Apparently this isn't unique to me. However the suggested fix involves registry edits/installing reg files, which I'm not keen to undertake lightly.


Anyone else had/fixed this error and can attest to the bona fides of the reigstry fix?
