I have a file and It's just like a normal blank file (file with the blank paper icon) and I clicked on it the other day and accidently pressed open with notepad. This screwed up my game as I can't get onto it due to changing the file to notepad version. How would I change it back to a normal file? It does it with all same type of file.

Do a System Restore.  Use a restore point created prior to this problem.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

If you don't have a restore point to before the problem occurred, posting more information would be helpful.


A screenshot of the Properties window perhaps.

Learn to use Google Search.  :busy:

Make full system images to restore to if your computer goes bonkers.

It may be you have only changed the 'Open with' attribute of this file. RIGHT click on the file, then click on 'Open with' in the pop-up menu that appears. It should look like this and click 'Choose default program' :-



Then click 'Browse' :-



Then navigate to the .EXE file for the game this file should be associated with and click ONCE on the EXE file and click 'Open'. this will bring you back to the previous screen where you should see your game selected as the application to open the file :-



Click 'OK' and that should be you.
