How to fix Sublime Text 3 "open with..." error

When trying to set explorer to open .txt files with Sublime Text 3, I couldn't select Sublime Text at all. After browsing for the sublime_text.exe, the list of programs still didn't show Sublime Text as an option.

It seems that Sublime Text 2 had left the registry in a broken state. The solution for this is to install CCleaner and running the registry cleanup, TWICE. After that, reinstall Sublime Text 3. Then right-click on a .txt file (or whatever file type you want to open with ST3) and select Open with... - Choose default program... - Browse... and find sublime_text.exe. Now you can select Sublime Text.


  1. Are you the owner of the Minecraft account "ZF"? If so, is there a way that I can get in contact with you?

    1. So you're not the owner of it then?

      A post you made here made me think you were :/

    3. Nope, I'm not using minecraft account 'zf', but that forum login is mine
