DGN file association in Windows 10 (MicroStation Does not appear in list)



When I look in Windows File Explorer to Double Click on a DGN file I would like MicroStation to be the default application. MicroStation does not display in the Open With file options. How can I get MicroStation assigned to my DGN files?


Right Click on DGN file in Windows File Explorer, Select Open With, Choose another app

Next Select More Apps, also check on Always use this app to open DGN files

Next Select Look for Another app on the PC

This will open a Windows File Explorer Browser
Browse to the MicroStation.exe file on your C:/Drive
Select the application file to be the Default to open all DGN files

You should see all your DGN file should have the MicroStation symbol associated to them.
