How Can I Change the Default Editor in Filezilla to use Wordpad instead of Notepad?

Posted on 2011-10-19

I"m having all kinds of problems trying to change the default text editor that Filezilla uses when I try to open a file on Unix. See attahed.

What happens is when select "view/edit" from Filezilla it opens all my files using Notepad and as you can see below it messes up the format so it's very difficult to see. Wordpad would reslove that. But I can't seem to find a way to change it. I've checked all the settings.

Please help! Thanks. Screen print1 Screen print2

    Filezilla inherits default Windows file viewer associations.
    If you don't want to change Windows default, you can follow the steps described here.

    You can even uncheck the "inherits file system's association"
