    Ah, ok. The ones that do not have the same line is because one of the subkeys does not allow access to it by default. If added, the downloaded .reg would give an error when trying to merge it since "Access denied" would prevent it from being deleted.

    Perhaps on those we would need to add

    Code:
    @=""
    or similar so as to get closer to true default settings?

    Any attempt to modify a key that doesn't allow permission by default would give an error.

    Normally, this would not be an issue unless someone took ownership and modified the keys. If so, then I would be happy to further help someone that needed help with those keys.

    Okay, here are some defaults that are not set by these REG files

    Code:
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\batfile\shell]
    @=""
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\cmdfile\shell]
    @=""
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\inifile\shell]
    @=""
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\jsfile\shell]
    @="Open"
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\PowerShellScript.1\shell]
    @="Open"
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\regfile\shell]
    @=""
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\txtfile\shell]
    @=""
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\xmlfile\shell]
    @=""
    I tested all of these and they can be modified without errors. Please consider
    adding them to their respective REG files.

    The ones that have the [-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\(file extension)] line don't need that added since it would be added by default anyways.

    I've added to .bat though since it didn't. :)

    Brink, thanks again for your help. However I did notice that Default_XML.reg
    does not contain

    Code:
    [-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\xmlfile]
    This is of course because of the "Access denied" error you mentioned. However as
    I said earlier this could cause a problem if someone has changed

    Code:
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\xmlfile\shell]
    @=""
    to something else, that change will not be reverted by the REG file. Please
    consider changing

    Code:
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\xmlfile\shell]
    to this

    Code:
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\xmlfile\shell]
    @=""
    in Default_XML.reg

    Brink, would you add ".csv"?

    Hello svnpenn,

    Windows does not have an association for .csv files by default.

    These are usually Microsoft Excel file types, so you should be able to set Excel (if installed) as the default program. :)
