Cannot open project from Epic Games Launcher

I am unable to open my project from the Epic Games Launcher > Library panel. I get an error message saying I need to create an association in my default programs folder.

Windows 10 has a default apps control panel. I don’t see any way to add UE as an app or program. I also tried setting a default app by file type, but the panel also does not recognize .uproject.

I’m able to open my project by launching the engine itself. This is only a problem within the Launcher.

i think you mean you cannot open up your Engine from the launcher right?. and that you cant see the engine there.

here is something that will help :
