    Hey everyone newbie here. I recently (and foolishly) was going through various files and accidentally changed how i open JAR files (.jar) on my laptop. I've tried re-downloading The "Java Runtime Environment" program but that didn't help. All i really need help with is to reset how i open my JAR files. I'll try to include pictures. When i right-click and go to Properties i then change "Open With" and i go to my java folder under C:\Program Files\Java which shows a folder called "jre1.8.0_181" which further opens up into "bin" and "lib" i just can't seem to figure out which one of the programs inside is right to run the ".jar" files like it used to before i messed it up. Any help would be appreciated, preferably with pictures to help me. Screenshot (17).png Screenshot (18).png

    Go into the "bin" folder and select "java.exe".
