I have a PHP file and need it to open with Notepad++. However, if I right click and select open with... and choose Notepad++ then it still opens with editor.exe and Notepad++ does not even appear in the list (see screenshot, window at right).

Why does it not work?

  1. Go to Browse button and navigate to Notepad ++ in Program Files or Program Files x86. Check this box "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file".

  1. You can try this free software Default Programs Editor
