To correct it manually, open regedit and navigate to Computer\HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Applications\, find the sublime_text.exe entry, and delete it. You should now be able to set Sublime Text 3 as the default editor for anything you want.


Today I finally got around to updating from ST2 to 3, and this issue was driving me crazy. Thank you for the fix. I'd have given up in frustration probably. Thank you so much!

I too made an account just to say thanks for this post.

I am guessing fixing this isn't too big of a deal with the uninstaller?
