Tab Default action


Under "Tools → Settings → Programs" in the tab "Default action", the user may define programs for opening files according to their extension, either with the "ENTER" key or by double-clicking on the file.



Assignment of filters and programs (default action)

Different file extensions (in the column "filter") may be assigned to be opened by different programs (in the column "programs").

In the above example, the program "PSPad.exe" is assigned to open files with the extensions "htm" and "html".

Calling the programs

On activation of the "ENTER" key or double click, the listed filters are analyzed sequentially from the top down. The highlighted file is opened by the program assigned to the first matching filter. Only checked rows are taken into account when matching a filter.

Editing the list of programs and their filters

The following buttons and shortcuts are available for editing the list of default programs:

  • (Insert):        add new row
  • (F2):        edit the filter in the highlighted row
  • (Ctrl+Del):        delete the highlighted row
  • (Ctrl+):        move the highlighted row up
  • (Ctrl+):        move the highlighted row down

The input box "program" specifies the program which should perform the action for the highlighted row.

The input box "parameter" specifies any parameters required for the program in the highlighted row.
