I updated to InDesign 2021 (16), but have left 2020 intact. Now I cannot change the default program in Windows 10. The program does not show up in the "Default apps", and even if I right click and choose the correct file, it does not register. I have to open 2021 and then use the "open file" option. There is no way to click on an InDesign file and have it default to 2021.

Try installing/reinstalling InDesign 2021 using the CC desktop app.

Thanks for the advice. I was a little nervous about doing this, but it worked like a charm!
