I installed a program called Audacious which I want to be the default for .wav files. When I go in Settings and try to change it from the current default my only choice is to get a program from the Microsoft Store. When I try to do that, Audacious doesn't come up as any kind of option. How do you change default programs in Windows 10?


It's called Audacity.  And they make it very difficult for “oddball” apps, but here's what you do:

  • Right-click on any WAV file
  • Select “Choose another app”
  • Click “More apps” (they try to hide that)

  • Then “Look for another app on this PC” and browse to that Audacity folder and file (C:Program FilesAudacityAudacity.exe)
  • Then you select Audacity from the new list that comes up and check the box “Always use this program” for that file extension.
