How do I re-associate .LNK


Hi,
Usually you guys are pretty quick in response, so my Q

Lnk files were associated with Word program
Removed Association through Folder Options - File Types OK
But now when selecting any Lnk file, Windows states what do you want to open this unknown format with?

So what does a Lnk file associate with directly?

My System
The extension Lnk is associated with the Lnkfile which is more commonly known as a Shortcut.

To repair your apparent misassociation, open a command window and type:

assoc.Lnk=Lnkfile

press enter and you should be good to go.
