Nexus mods are downloading as Atom files


#1

I wanted to install the Bethesda archive extractor from the nexus mods, but it downloads as an Atom file.
Does anyone know hoe i can actually download it without Atom being involved or change the download path?

I don’t think there’s such thing as an Atom file. You may want to try using “Open With”, and setting a default option.

I don’t know what kind of file it is you’re talking about though. A text file can be opened by any editor. A text file that can be executed or a pure executable should be run in the command prompt. A zip file should be unzipped.

This doesn’t have anything to do with Atom. At some point, you told your computer to associate the mod files with the Atom application.
