Topic "How to change default file viewer?"

WinSCP is great...but when I click on a file, it gives me an error because it's trying to open them with MS Word. I want to view files in gvim, for example. I successfully changed the *editor* to external (gvim), but I don't see any way to change the default file *viewer*.

p.s. thanks for the help...you should have a searchable forum so that maybe I can find the answer.

There is no default viewer. When you double click file, WinSCP opens application associated with the file type. You can change it in Windows Explorer.
