R – External editor in Visual Studio 2008


Is there any way to set up external editor integration for VS2008?

By this I mean when I double-click on a .CPP file in the Solution Explorer, it should open in the external editor, not the internal VS one.

To keep it simple let's say I want it to open the file in Notepad++ (or how about Notepad to make it even simpler).

Best Solution

Right click on the type of file you want in the Solution Explorer,

Then choose Open With...

Pick your program, and choose "Set as Default"
