Can't open a .cpp file?

When you double-click a file to open it, Windows examines the filename extension. If Windows recognizes the filename extension, it opens the file in the program that is associated with that filename extension. When Windows does not recognize an extension, you receive the following message:

Select an app to open this .cpp file

  3. Scroll down and click on the Default apps option.

  5. Locate the category that matches the file type you want to associate, such as Photos for image files or Video player for video files.
  6. Click on the current default app listed under the category. A list of available apps will appear.
