edit php files???

#1 Post by greggustin » 2009-09-22 21:41

I download a php file and click view/edit
it uses a wrong program - even though my windows XP association is correct
I want to EDIT, not VIEW the php

ideas?

Make sure the Open verb is associated with your desired editor.

hmmm . . .
for some reason *.php was associated with MicroSoftPictureIt
I had already noted that (and fixed it) before I made my 1st post)
I just rechecked it and PictureIt had REASSIGNED itself as the default for php
no matter what I do - it keeps grabbing it as its own !
so, I tried the settings INSIDE filezilla - but I cannot cipher the method to make
notepad open php
can you walk me through it please

ty

**********************
did some checking online
seems like my problem is NOT unique . . . it is MS !
only way to fix is regedit and/or uninstall the program
so, , , perhaps FileZilla can over ride it
again - plz walk me thru
I will keep trying
