Cannot open file path on any selected item.

Says "Class not registered" - re-installed to no avail. Any tips?

Something might be wrong with your registry.

Although this doesn't fix the underlying issue, please try changing how Everything opens folders:
  • In Everything, from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the Context Menu tab on the left.
  • Select Open (Folders)
  • Change command to:
    $exec("%SystemRoot%\explorer.exe" /n,/e,"%1")
  • Select Open Path
  • Change command to:
    $exec("%SystemRoot%\explorer.exe" /n,/e,/select,"%1")
  • Click OK.

Right, I dug through the previous post about this and went and tried to repair my registry but it didn't seem to help, or I haven't successfully done it yet. Your advise/workaround definitely helped!

I know this is not in the scope of support anymore, but any ideas?

Some suggestions:
I solved this problem eventually....... Start button>All apps>Windows system>Default programs.

You will see two "Default programs" ; use either, though the second (bearing the settings icon) is idiot proof.

The first button allows you to set a range of defaults within Windows 10.

I appreciate it! Unfortunately user error caused me to restore my computer to it's fresh install, so I'm back to square one. At least I should be able to pinpoint what's ruining my registry now :)
