I recently installed Skype on Kubuntu 20.04 via snap and I discovered that it added itself at the end of the list of applications associated with every single file type on the system! Of course, this means that for the many file types recognised by the system that don't currently have an application associated with them or unknown file types, Skype became the default application.
The only practical way I found of undoing this (practical meaning not manually going through every single file type) was to completely uninstall Skype.
Is there a way of preventing an application from doing this? Or at least, is there a simple way of undoing this after the fact?
This example is specific to Skype on snap, but I'd prefer a general answer (i.e., that would apply to any app on snap or in general) if it exists. The only answers I've seen related to similar issues with file-type associations are application-specific, so not helpful in this case.
