I have a filetype (.xyz) that I would like to map to a text editor (sublime). It is currently mapped to open with notepad.

Attempts to map .xyz filetype:

1) Open file explorer, select .xyz file and right click: select properties

2) Click Change button

3) Browse-to and select target .exe

enter image description here

I could not add the target text editor .exe (sublime) to the list of programs circled in red, nor could I associate it with the target filetype. Suggestions are appreciated.
