How do I make it use 7-Zip when opening a .zip file?

I want WinSCP to use 7-Zip when opening a ZIP file instead of using File Explorer.

Do you mean that you want WinSCP to open double-clicked file in 7-Zip? Is 7-Zip the default application for .zip files on your machine? How do .zip files open in Windows File explorer? If you to use 7-Zip with .zip files, change the default .zip application in Windows Settings. I you want WinSCP to behave differently than Windows File Explorer, you can change it in preferences:

I’ve tried setting it in the editors page but it still used file explorer.
My default is file explorer but I don’t wanna change that cause I only use 7-zip to edit files in archives (which is what I wanna do in WinSCP).
