What program used to open them?

As for opening in notepad, sounds like you changed the default program.

This should allow you to correct what program is used to open .dbs files: Default Programs - Set a Program's Default Associations

Thank you for replying so quickly

I'm not sure what programme used to open it, but i had the option to copy and paste them.

Now having changed the default to notepad I can no longer copy and paste.

I get to shot 3 in your link and have clicked all the left list, but can't work out what's what from there on .

Try choice 2, Associate a file type or protocol with a program.

Also, open a Elevated Command Prompt.
Use the assoc and ftype commands to see what .dbs is st to

For instance, for .txt:

C:\WINDOWS\system32>assoc .txt

C:\WINDOWS\system32>ftype txtfile
txtfile=%SystemRoot%\system32\NOTEPAD.EXE %1

So you would enter:

assoc .dbs

The response would be


You would then enter

ftype xxxxxxxx

and the response will tell you what the file type association is set to. I imagine it will be notepad.
You can use the ftype command to change it to something else:

ftype xxxxxxxx=yyyyyyyy

Enter ftype /? for help info.

If you want to remove existing file type association, enter

ftype xxxxxxxx=
