    How to undo default program set to firefox for .Ink files on Windows 7?

    When I navigate into Control Panel>Programs>Default Programs>Set Associations from the start menu on my PC running on Windows 7, I found Unknown under Current Default for .Ink files. I have double clicked on it and looked for other default programs. There was only firefox and I clicked on it. I saw firefox symbols on .Ink files after that. The files starts to open tabs in browser instead of correct programs while opening them. In what way can I get back to previous settings?

    Press the Windows Key + R on the keyboard so that the Run dialog box will pop up on the screen. Type regedit into the ‘Open’ field and hit the ‘Enter’ key. This will open up the Registry Editor on your system. Get into the left side bar of the registry window and navigate into HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Explorer\FileExts\.lnk.Then, locate OpenWithList registry key and double click on it. Make certain that it hold only (Default) | REG_SZ | (value not set). Double click on OpenWithProgids key afterwards and confirm that it has only (Default) | REG_SZ | (value not set) and o lnkfile | REG_NONE | (zero-length binary value). If you can find UserChoice subkey or subfolder, then right click on it and choose ‘Delete’ option from the available menu. Finally, restart your PC and default program for .Ink files set to unknown.
