Default Message "isn't your default program", while in fact it is my default program

I have Windows 10, Office 2016 Professional Dutch.


Yesterday I decided I want an English user interface for MS Office 2016, so I downloaded the English package and installed it. Everything is okay, except:

  1. an icon issue
  2. an file association issue
Re 1: all icons for Office file extensions were gone. I managed to regain most of them again, except the one for .doc. It may have something to do with the next issue.

Re 2: after fixing the icon issue by telling Windows which are the default apps for opening Office files (through Settings --> Apps --> Default Apps) I ended up having regained most of the icons, but when I open any office document (either .pptx, .docx, .xlsx, or the like) it opens with the correct Office program, but then it keeps telling me: 'Microsoft [Word/Excel/etc] isn't your default program ...", while in fact it is!


How do I get rid of this message?

Have you tried repairing the Office installation (via Windows Control Panel > Programs > Programs & Features > Microsoft Office (version) > Change > Repair)?
