Since I installed Matlab 2018a, my .m files do not open with Matlab anymore and Matlab is not in the list of choices of applications to open them. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling already... I also followed the steps indicated here: However, in bin there is no matlab.exe

It's exactly the same for me, and the "file association fix" doesn't work, I don't know what to do.

Hi Luca,
Try putting the file in: C:\Program Files\MATLAB\R2018a\associateFiles
And then reboot the computer. I forgot the exact steps but since the file is there it does open .m files.
Good luck
