Win 10 10586.14 cannot remember default apps by file type ...

I've setup the followings using approach 1 and 2 (it works but won't last long)
- associate jpg, jpeg, bmp and png to faststone image viewer (see Figure 2 as an example)
- associate html/htm to firefox
- associate pdf to PDF X change viewer

Then after a while, or after reboot, the above settings will be reset to system default, so troublesome!
- associate jpg, jpeg, bmp and png back to Photos (see Figure 1 as an example)
- associate html back to Edge
- associate pdf back to Edge

Approach 1 - via Settings
Settings\SYSTEM\Default apps
Choose default apps by file type

Approach 2 - via Control Panel
Control Panel\Programs\Default Programs
Associate a file type or protocol with a program

Some user feedback  ...

"Other than setting PDF to Edge, and resetting default apps TH2 has been awesome"

"PDF's insisted in opening with Microsoft edge. i got round that issue after a few days by reinstalling the update ..."

After updating to 10586.3, I did the followings to reset the PC

At
Update & Security
Recovery
Reset this PC
Remove everything

As such, the installation should be next to clean install.


Then we got the following updates :

10586.13 (I suppose)
Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1511 for x64-based Systems (KB3118754)

10586.14 (I suppose)
Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1511 for x64-based Systems (KB3120677)

Now the default apps ... sucks

Discovered something, see if it works
Stay tuned ...

As the problem is related to Edge (at least for html and pdf files), I did the following and it seems the problem has been resolved!  Including those jpg, png, bmp, etc.

Settings\clear browsing data\select the first 5 items

Let see if it works for days ...

After the update, system did the followings again !
- associate html/htm back to Edge
- associate pdf back to Edge

MS insisted ppl to use Edge to view pdf and html ... sigh

OK ... manually associate the file types back to my favorites !
