Open With Ultimaker-Cura not working in File Explorer Windows 11

Posted · Open With Ultimaker-Cura not working in File Explorer Windows 11

When I try to open something like an stl or gcode file with cura through the "open with" option in the file explorer, the window just pops up again and doesn't open cura. I tried searching online which led to a few other people describing the same issue but I didn't get a very definitive answer. I've updated cura a few times and now I'm on version 5.3.0. I've noticed that the "open with" name is Ultimaker-Cura.exe and not UltiMaker-Cura.exe with a different capitalization which I'm assuming is the application name from a previous version based on my research; This is just a blatant guess though, I could be totally wrong about this. Also when I try to select another app from my pc and choose UltiMaker-Cura.exe, it doesn't change the menu at all and the same problem reoccurs. This isn't a game-breaking bug but it is kind of inconvenient and annoying.2023-04-23.thumb.png.0272f44a783b87989aa73c1836187545.png

    That's an odd bug.. 
    I would recommend reporting this on github to ensure it gets visibility.. The community forum is not the best place to report bugs unfortunately. 

    Submitting it on github ensures it lands right in front of the developer team.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
