Associating Atom with (text) files on Windows is very difficult #6734
I want to open all my text files with Atom, but I couldn't find a good way to do that, that's not breaking with every Atom update, and I don't get Atom icons.
Did I do something wrong? Is there a way to make the existing "Open with Atom" right-click menu entry "stick"?
Versions: Windows 8.1, Atom 198; dialog strings translated from German, so may not be identical to an english windows.
This problem annoyed me too so I put together this little solution. https://shanegowland.com/tech/2015/atom-editor-open-with-assistant-for-windows/
