Thema: How to change back to System file called 'Windows Shell Common dll?'
Please excuse me because I did not know where to post this question, so I decided to post in here. It is not exactly a DNS question so please forgive me for that. It is a question I would deeply like to know the answer to please.
I accidentally assigned a program to open a dll System file called 'Windows Shell Common dll. I now realise I should have just left this file blank as a plain white icon. I need to know how to change it back to that state?
I assumed I had to open it choosing a program to open it with. I right clicked it and chose 'Microsoft Word.' I've since found out I should not have chosen any program and just left it white.
Apparently, these are known as 'dll' files as explained above. In addition, I have since been told, there is no need to open this type of file anyway as it contains only information for a backup of my original Windows Speech Recognition Speech Profile. This is what I did not realise.
After assigning Microsoft Word as the program to open it, now it is showing, not as a complete white file (as it should,) but as a white file with a 'Microsoft Word' icon in the centre of it. I deleted this file and started another new speech profile from scratch. After the necessary training, I backed it up but it still saved with the 'Microsoft Word' icon in the centre of a white document instead of just a plain white document.
Therefore, my question is, how can I change it back to a plain white file (as it should be) or a System file 'dll' called 'Windows Shell Common dll.' file to give it its proper name? Googled this and found this link:
All I have been able to do is change the program to open it. I changed Microsoft Word to Notepad but this is still wrong, as it should just be plain blank!
An answer on how to achieve this would be most appreciated.
