I recently upgraded win7 to win10. Some issues happened with ico files types.
Double-click jpg files, it shows the View mode.
Double-click ico file, it shows the Browser mode.
How can I change the default view to View mode for all file types?

I use the portable xniew 2.40.

got regedit and find

Code: Select all

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts\.txt\UserChoice

- In the right-pane, note down the value data for Progid
-If the UserChoice branch does not exist, navigate to the following branch:

Code: Select all

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.txt

In the right-pane, double-click (default) and mention the path to your custom icon
edit that and close.
