Open Windows 8.1/8 files with desktop programs and not with Metro APPs!


The solution is simple to open Windows 8.1 or 8 files with desktop programs and not with Metro APPs!



Prerequisite is of course that the correct program is installed, for the appropriate file type or file extension.

The file associations in Windows 8.1 and 8, I have described here:
... define in Windows 8 a program to open multiple file types!
... Windows 8 associations for file type: open with multiple programs or apps!

However, you can uninstall all Metro apps with in one fell swoop and then optionally delete from the hard drive also, for example!
See here: ... Uninstall or delete Windows 8.1 / 8 Applications!
and: ... clean up the app folder in Windows 8.1 and 8 (delete app´s)!

If you only once open file with a desktop program: See: ... In Windows 8, the files are opened with the wrong program!
and: (... see Image-1 Arrow-1 and 2)

File association!



Info (c) Microsoft!
To open a file, double-tap or double-click it. The file will usually open in the app that you used to create or edit it. For example, a text file will open in your word-processing app. If you want to open a file in a different app than the one you usually use, select the file, tap or click the Home tab, tap or click the arrow next to Open, and then choose the app you want to use.
