Associated file types still don't work after reinstalling

Hi,


On my main computer (W7) I have for some time lived with the fact that I cannot open a ggb file by (double-)clicking on it. I decided to do something about it and uninstalled al traces of GeoGebra I could find and reinstalled it. Unfortunately this did not solve the problem. What have I missed? Should I also uninstall Java? Uninstall the program that "hijacks" the file association (Notepad2)?

    Should I also uninstall Java?


No, that definitely won't help


Uninstall the program that "hijacks" the file association (Notepad2)?


Probably won't help... have you tried right-click on the .ggb file -> Open With -> Choose Default Program?

Thanks! That did it. :D


I think I tried doing that a long time ago but did not succed and so didn't think of it now. GeoGebra isn't listed automatically but browsing for GeoGebra worked fine. Really glad it was so simple.


Thanks again.
