How to reset all default apps in Windows 10
If you have changed your default apps too many times and just want to restart from scratch, you can easily reset all the default apps to the Windows 10 built-in ones.
After clicking the reset button, all selection will revert to their original default system apps. Music will open in Groove, images in Photos, web links in Edge, and so on. From there you can go back in and (re)customise your options.
