Hello.

For a specific game I'd like to play it requires .WAD files
I already possess those so that's not the problem

However, I accidentally opened it with a different type of files, which ended up replacing all the .WAD files with an unknown file that only show up Sonic heads.

How do I change it back to .WAD files? I'm using Windows 10

Thank you for reading.

It can be done manually by editing the registry but see the below link for programs that can do the same thing or from within Windows.

The above should still work for Windows 10 but see the below link.
