Double clicking .exe: "How do you want to open this file?"

12.19.b5:

Double clicking any .exe files I get How do you want to open this file
Double clicking any .exe in File Explorer works OK
Have added File Types Diagnostic for exe files
Opus_FTD_File_exe.zip (75.6 KB)

Delete all values (but not the key itself) under here:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts\.exe\OpenWithList

The OpenWithList key should exist, but be empty, like this:

You somehow have these values below there at the moment (which should be impossible as the Open With dialog should be blocked for exe files, by Windows itself, but apparently there's still a way for it to happen):

...\.exe\OpenWithList: "a" is REG_SZ: "LaunchWinApp.exe"
...\.exe\OpenWithList: "b" is REG_SZ: "cab"
...\.exe\OpenWithList: "c" is REG_SZ: "a"
...\.exe\OpenWithList: "d" is REG_SZ: "msedge.exe"
...\.exe\OpenWithList: "MRUList" is REG_SZ: "abcd"
