Since I have recently been using FileZilla to restore some of my other websites and projects. I came across the problem when editing files that FileZilla wouldn’t open and edit any files associated with notepad.exe. I wasn’t concerned at first as I wasn’t in any rush and was able to log in to my Cpanelon my hosting site and edit the files that way. But a few days later after I performed an update for FileZilla and still was shown the error message, “No program has been associated with this file type.”
It was eventually driving me mad, as I like to have things working correctly all the time. So I decided to delve into the problem headfirst and try to solve the problem. It only took me a few minutes, but for other readers who have had the same problem, I thought I might give a little helping hand and let you know how I overcome this problem. Here are the steps I took, to overcome the “No program has been associated with this file type.” when trying to open files with notepad.exe.
Fix The Error, No Program Has Been Associated With This File Type
- In FileZilla, at the top of the program, look for the tab ‘Edit’,
- Then select ‘Settings’,
- And on the left search down the list until you see ‘Associated File-Types’,
- Highlight all the text, and clear all,
- Select ‘OK”, and try opening the file again.
Everthing should be working fine now.
