I have Illustrator version 25.21 and work on a Windows Surfacebook 2. For some reason after I updated Illustrator, all my Illustrator files on my desktop now have a Google Chrome thumbnail icon. When I click to open the ai file, Chrome opens up and it downloads the file. The only way to open it in Illustrator is to right click, Open with, Adobe Illustrator. Does anyone know what the problem is?
