Need help with file association



  • Hi there! I’m not really an expert on anything, so pls bear with me.

    I have a certain file type .abc and I would like to open it in Notepad++

    The problem I have is that I need to manually select Notepad++ from the list of software to open this file type (double click on file, scroll down to Notepad++, double click on Notepad++ to open). I tried to solve this via W7 file association, however the file type is not listed. I also tried to solve this via Notepad++ settings and added the file type to custom, but it still does not open it automatically.

    I need to open this file type quite often between test cycles of a software and it becomes really annoying to click around so many times just to open the files. Is there any way to solve this?

    maybe this can do what you want to be done.

    Cheers

    Hi, I already tried that but it doesn’t work. Somehow Windows (or Notepad++) doesn’t “remember” the software associated with the file.
