opening .svg files in Windows 10

Postby DET1242 » Tue May 28, 2019 11:02 am

I have tried to set up Windows 10 to open .svg files directly in Inkscape. In the past you could set the system to open them directly but now you can't. Only option that I have found is to bring up Inkscape first then open the file directly rather than clicking on the file and having it open inkscape. any thought appreciated.

I used the Inkscape installer to Repair my installation.

I think what screwed it up is that I was trying to set my default apps, and I used Reset to set them all to the Windows 10 recommended. I happen to like using the Windows 10 Mail/People/Calendar apps. I'm also giving Edge a try. I know, everybody hates Edge, but I like playing around with new things. I get a pass here because I also use Ubuntu quite a bit. ;)
