I have some .php files, Some of them i want to be opened automatically by notepad++, So i go to properties then change the open with value, The problem is that all my .php files is now automatically opened with the software i defined, What i want to do is to define certain .php files to be opened automatically with certain software the php engine for example and some of them with the notepad++, The first solution i come up with is use the phtml suffix but it will be much more cleaner if i could choose the files i want to open with certain software, if anyone got a solution i will be very thankful, Thank you all and have a nice day.

notepad++ automatically adds a right click option to all files to open in notepad++. leave php files associated to the php interpreter and just use the right click menu when you want to edit.
