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.

That's what the search box on the top right is good for :-)
