Yesterday I found an asset on the Unity Asset Store website, clicked the button "Open in Unity", and it was opened in Unity.

Today, when I did the same thing, I got the error message below:

enter image description here

I opened the Defaults Apps page in Windows 10 Settings. But what do I do from here?

I think that for some reason windows doesn't know what application to open the package with. You should open unity and go to Assets -> Import package -> Custom package and just open the file.

I did not find a solution, but I found a workaround:

  • In the Unity website, click "Add to My Assets";
  • Go to the Unity editor;
  • Open the Asset Store window;
  • Click my initials (at the top-right corner; for me they are ES);
  • Click "My Assets";
  • Find the desired asset, click Download and then click Import.

I still do not understand why clicking "Open in Unity" in the website stopped working, and how to fix it.

Generally for questions about Windows configuration, you can ask on Super User.

You can scroll to the bottom of the Default apps window and choose "Choose default apps by file type" then scroll down to UnityPackage and click "Choose a default" - then pick your Unity version of choice.

Choose default apps window

If you can't get Windows to recognize the Unity package type, then you can also open your Unity project and pull the package in with Assets > Import Package

Import package menu
