Choosing default applications by file extension is tedious. Any better approaches?

Luke Robinett

In the Windows 10 settings dialog to assign default applications by file extension, you are presented with a massive list of file extensions but no convenient way to scroll through them. I’ve tried the arrow keys, page up, page down, home and end but it seems the only mode of navigation is the tab key. Considering this list contains hundreds of entries, this is extremely tedious and impractical. Is there a better way of accessing these file extension settings, perhaps through a third-party app or directly editing the underlying config file, wherever that lives? Thanks.
