Filezilla FTP: How to Disable Double Click Action

When I double click a file, I'd like the default action to be to edit the file.  Currently, it initiates a file transfer.

I looked in the Edit -> Settings area but didn't find how to set this.

Can someone tell me where that setting is?

Well yes, I am aware of that as a plausible work-around.  However, I am trying to find a setting in Filezilla or the Registry that will alter the default left mouse double-click action, or re-assign it to edit/view the file rather than initiate a file transfer.

Double Click should Open a file forediting. It's more like a Bug that when I double click it overwrites myprevious file on the server or visa versa if clicking on the serverside. Not good behavior at all.

It would be optimal to provide auser setting in Options to configure this action. I'm going to revertback to a previous version (v2.2.32) until this is fixed .
