Hi,

There are already applications for handling file type associations, like xdg-open for example. Some users also have their own scripts for this.

Please add an option to disable all default programs of xfe for the double click and use one other program for all files instead.

Please also add extra options to handle double click, view and edit on all unknown files (for example files with no file name extension), so users can choose a default program to do additional file type checks or try to use a default viewer/editor (hex editor / text editor) on unknown files.

Please keep the context menu for known files like it is. My suggestions only affects double click for all files and view/edit of unknown files! Everything else in the context menu is perfect.

Thanks.

    Yes, this can be improved. I plan to work on this and to follow the standards as far as possible.
    Thanks for the report,
