Open file with other than default program in Total Commander

In Total Commander,
If one wants to open a file in other than the default program, for example a text file in Notepad++ instead of Notepad:

Configuration/Button Bar
Browse for the exe file of the program (click on >>)
Parameters: %P%N

After this you will get an icon of the program in Button bar.
To open a file in that program navigate to the file in Total Commander, and simply click the program icon at the Button bar.

  2. Businesses today are operating online and one of the most important things that they use day to day is file sharing transfer files
