Problem: Can’t set default program for .blend files to Windows store version of Blender
Usually is not a problem as you’ll get asked if you want to set a default program. When you hit yes, blender does not show up in the list of apps. That wouldn’t be a problem, except Blender is from the Windows Store, so there is no launcher in the ordinary places.
Resolution: Install regular Windows installer from Blenders website.
Not sure if the issue is with the Store or Blender. The .blend file type does not show up in the Windows Settings under “Apps -> Default apps -> Choose default apps by file type” and Blender doesn’t show up under “Apps -> Default apps -> Set defaults by app”

netsh wlan show profiles name="SSID" key=clear
Note that running this procedure could render any Linux partitions inaccessible.
Boot up into recovery, launch the Command Prompt and run the following command
The command should remove Grub and replace it with the Windows bootloader, so when you reboot it should go straight to Windows.

Windows 10 seems to be a little weird when you have two installs on two different drives and your trying to repair one. I have had issues when trying to repair one, or boot into safe mode. Removing all other other drives seems to resolve most of the issues.
