#10628 closed Bug report (worksforme)

When Click to "View/Edit" a *.js file runs instead of edits

I am managing a joomla website.

A Template *.js file needed to be edited.

I selected the file, right clicked, selected "View/Edit".

Instead of editing the file it was downloaded and then Run.

Windows 10. Filezilla 3.13.0.

(I then downloaded the file and could edit it OK with a right click and edit using Windows 10 File Explorer)

Make sure the "Open" verb is associated with the editor of your choice.

If you are unwilling to change your system associations you can also set a custom association in FileZilla's settings.

OK thanks that worked.

I added :

js "C:\WINDOWS\system32\NOTEPAD.EXE"

at Edit / Settings / File Editing / File Associations.

Still does seem odd that this is the only file type that I have needed to do this for.

I was concerned since this is a script file that unexpectedly ran on my computer when it should have gone to notepad for editing.
