Windows: 'Open in Atom' when you right click in Windows Explorer


#1

I’ve made a .reg file to edit the windows registry in order to support right click “Open in Atom” from Windows Explorer.

This is not a package but it seems like the right place to post.

There is a package that claims to do this but it did not work for me.

You can find the file at https://gist.github.com/kyle-ilantzis/open-w-atom.reg

You’ll have this automatically if you install Atom with Chocolately.

Yea the package didn’t do it for me either, so I did it by hand at the time. But there are too many people having issues with chocolatey so I tend to still build it myself.
That reg file will save me some time, thanks!
