How can I restore my shortcuts in Windows 7?

farhat ali November 10, 2011

I was trying to get a program open and I used Open. I changed the *.Ink to open the application and forgot to uncheck the Always Open With option. Now, I can’t use any of my shortcuts. I know I should have done a backup as soon as I got my system, but it doesn’t seem to like any of the CD’s I’ve tried to use for backup. Is there any way for me to fix my *.Ink files?

    This question has been asked several times in this site.  The common answer is the one on the following link:  


    If for some reason that doesn't work for you, you can try the steps on following link:

    Or, you can use the same process you used to set the icons to .lnk. Just that this time make sure to uncheck the Always Open With option. This would take a little bit of time because it would have to be done one by one.
