    I broke my powershell context menu when right clicking on ps1 files. Can someone send the default reg values for the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Microsoft.PowerShellScript.1 settings?

    Right now I just have HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Microsoft.PowerShellScript.1\shell\Command and nothing else.

    The only settings I can find is for Windows 7 but I wanted to be sure so I didn't break my system more than necessary 🙂

    From the start screen, type in "File Extension" and select the option to "Change the file type associated with a file extension." when the Set Associations window pops up find the .ps1 extension and set it to open with Powershell ISE or whatever program you intend to use.
