You can set specific file extensions to be edit or run without being prompted with a menu. The default has been set for .sublime-project .txt and a few other files types. Open open_url.sublime-settings to change and add your own.
- If the action is 'edit' it will be opened for editing in Sublime
- If the action is 'run' it will be executed by the OS
