    Thanks – it worked a treat! Control panel eventually pushed me into a “settings” like screen for the final protocol associations, so one screen looked a little different, but the repair still fixed it for me.

    • More and more items are being moved to the Settings application with each release. I probably should have made a note of what build I was running on my laptop when this post was written. I’ll have to make a note of that for future Windows feature posts. Thanks for stopping by!

    Thanks, that worked. In my case “Associate” entries were not even there, but repair added them.

    works fine now, great! I had to install the Office Apps, even though I already had the Office client installed. Any idea why it requires the app and why it can’t find the office client software?

    • You had to install the Office apps from the Microsoft Store? That is very odd as I don’t have those installed on my computer, I only have the OneNote app from the store, everything else is from the Office 365 installation.
