How to set default editor to open files from Filezilla

filezilla-and-notepad++

Issue

Filezilla opens file in notepad and its non-formatted file so we do not get idea about the indents

 

Solution

  • First step, we need to install Notepad++ (Download From HERE)
  • It will be installed at “C:/Program Files (x86)/Notepad++”
  • The execution file will be “notepad++.exe”
  • Secondly, we need to open FileZilla and go to top menu -> Edit -> Settings
  • Thirdly, we need to select page “File Editing” -> File Type Association
  • It will show

php “C:\WINDOWS\System32\NOTEPAD.EXE”

  • Next step is to change that path.

php “C:\Program Files (x86)\Notepad++\notepad++.exe”

  • Above line means that PHP files should be opened in Notepad++
  • Last step is to save so press “OK” button and now on wards file will be opened in Notepad++.
  • If we need to add editor for XML files then of course we need to add above line and replace PHP with XML
  • If we need to add editor for CSS files then of course we need to add above line and replace PHP with CSS

Enjoy 🙂
