How to change files back that it opens with unknown application

Hello so i have accidently changed that all .lua files open with notepad on default since i forgot to uncheck always use the selected program to open this kind of file. So is there any way to restore all .lua files back to normal that they open with unknown application so i have to select what to open it with? Thanks

Give me a link to this .lua file.

What is it ?

What did you have opening the file before the change ?

Can`t you right click on the file, choose open with and open it with the program you use to use ?
