So if I clicked on an HTML file (e.g., a program help file) that browser would open.
Recently though the browser window opens, but no file. If I use "file/open" in the browser and navigate to the folder and select the file, it opens. Which is an enormous pain.
If in Explorer I click on a HTML file, same thing, browser opens, but not the file.
If I look at the file associations, I see the default action is:
"open" with "P:\Opera\Opera.exe" "%1"
which is correct.
but I also see for "edit" :
and "print": ""P:\MSOffice\Office\msohtmed.exe" /p %1"
And I have no idea how those got there.
If I change or just delete the "edit" and "print" association, Opera will open the file normally.
But a short time later, it reverts.
I assume that if I open MS Word or Excel that somehow it thinks it has a licence to screw up my file associations.
recently I updated MS Office, though I certainly DID NOT agree to it doing anything about HTML files.
How can I fix this permanently?
