Revert back to default action when opening unknown file types

How to revert back the default action when opening an unknown file? I want a prompt what application to open when I tried to open an unknown file.

After installing VeraCrypt, it took over almost all common file types and also became an option for all file types. It’s very annoying! When I accidently double-clicked a PY file, it opens with VeraCrypt. When I downloaded a Chrome extension and clicked at the bottom bar where the download progress appears, it opens VeraCrypt instead of installing it as a Chromium extension. CRX is an unknown file and has no any app associated with on my settings.

in your .config folder you can manually edit mimeapps.list or just backup that file (just in case) then delete the file. It should get recreated automatically.
