Updating old windows
If you want to stop Windows 10 from automatically resetting default apps, you have no option but to use third-party programs.
Stop Resetting My Apps is a free program developed to enable Windows 10 users to stop Windows 10 from automatically resetting built-in apps as default programs.
Like earlier versions, Windows 10 also allows you to change the default apps and programs.
You can set your own program or app as the default for certain file types.
The problem with these built-in apps is that Windows 10 automatically resets them as the default whenever it receives a major update.
For instance, if you have set Google Chrome as the default web browser, Windows 10 automatically resets Edge as the default browser again when a feature/major update is installed.
Visit the developer’s page to download the latest version of Stop Resetting My Apps program.
Any one can guide me regarding the two versions 2.3 and 2.6 which will be better?
If an application or web page you access requires an older version of Java, you should report this to the provider/developer and request that they update the application to be compatible with all Java versions.
They store the settings in the folder next to the executable. You can test the recent version without system installation: Download the portable version marked as USB type. Extract the ZIP file into a different folder than your existing installation and start the executable.
I do not know version 2.3, but I know, that version 2.6.6 (the recent subversion) is much better than 2.4, that I once tested.
Most of the native apps in Windows 10 are set as default apps.
For instance, the Edge is the default web browser and PDF reader, and Photos app is the default picture viewer in Windows 10.
