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


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


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!
