How do you change the default file explorer ?

Post by linternetsansfil »

Hello, I am a C programmer and I am creating my own file explorer. I would like to know how you can change the default file explorer on Windows, I mean when we doudle click on a folder, it executes explorer.exe, how to change this ? It is probably with the registry editor, if it's the case, where and how do you make this process automatic like in the "tool" section of the menu of the GUI, do you simply use .reg files ? Thanks for reading.
