Shortcuts all opening in same program - Remove Open With from .Ink Shortcuts

stumbled on this one today was messing around with a computer that had all .Ink or shortcuts set to open in Microsoft word, so everything would open in word,  Internet explorer, game shortcuts anything really. Here are the steps to fix it.

1. Simple Solution

The first solution involves using CreativeElement power tool which can be download from

this is just a simple tool that lets us fix the problem with a few clicks, it is free for 45 days and I am in no way associated with the software company, it worked for me and these are the steps I took

1. Install the Software and run Creative Element Power Tools
2. Under the file tools submenu click the checkbox next to "Edit file type associations" and then hit Accept
3. Under the heading "Edit file type associations" click on Start File Type Doctor Now

  4. Once the file type doctor is open, goto your desktop or wherever you keep your shortcuts right click a shortcut and click on Edit File Type
5. Now in the Actions in right click menu , highlight User choice override ( will be in red italic font) remove and click yes
Image of action menu after user choice override already removed. highlight user choice override , click on remove and yes. All your shortcuts should return to normal

hope that helps someone :)
