Bounty: 50

I was trying to setup my PC to open FTP and File urls in IE and everything else browser-related (http/https/html etc) in Chrome.

I’ve hit a snag – after manipulating just about every single registry key I can find relating to default apps.

From what I can tell, the app that is handling “.htm” file type opens ALL the other types and protocols as well – regardless of their default app settings!

Is this by design? Are you not allowed to have different apps open different protocols/file types? If so, what’s the point of the default apps system?

Can anyone shed some light on this?
