Hi All. Situation is this. I have a file that needs to be opened by a .bat file. The problem is the file extension is .ZPL and Windows 10 associates that with Groove. I have used PS to remove Groove, but then when I try to associate the file with the bat file in Settings, I cannot! Microsoft will only allow me to select/associate files from its store. I have tried right clicking on the file and telling it to always use my bat file, but it will not save this preference. Does anyone know a what around this w/WIN10? Thanks.
