Open file in file explorer

If you want use this feature directly then you need do couple of steps.

Step 1

Attention! If you have done this before then there is no need for this. In this picture we see couple of choices. Firstly we have to right click a file what we want to open. If you want open it only once in Universal Writer then click ”Open with” and ”Universal Writer”. If you would like to open file next time only clicking it once then choose ”Open with” and ”Choose another app”.

Step 2

Here you select Universal Writer and click ”Always use this app to open (file type) files”. Now you should have Universal Writer selected and checkbox checked then press ”OK”. Now you should be able to open your file only clicking it once. So next time you don’t have to make same process with same file type.
