    File Type php Missing in Windows File Association Settings

    I would like to associate the php file format with a text editor utility such as Sublime Text. When I attempt to "always open file type with Sublime Text" via the context menu in Windows Explorer, it does not work. When I open Settings > Default Apps > Choose Default Apps by file type, the php file format appears to be missing from the list - see screenshot. I expected it to be listed below the .php3 file type.

    On a related note, I was also unable to associate the css and html file types with Sublime Text (or any other software) via Windows Explorer. I was able to work around this by using the FileTypesMan utility. However, the FileTypesMan utility is not able to associate php files either. Please advise. TIA.

    I tried that, and it's not working. Please see the screen video and let me know if you have any ideas how to fix it.

    Probably something to do with not having a listing for .php files...

    Try this: (I read it somewhere)...

    Paste a bunch of jargon into a new Text file on your desktop, save it as whatever.php, then try the aforementioned again.

    This is a sample/portion of what I get with a .php file open in my HTML/Web page editor [Microsoft Expression Web], not of much use:

    mw.loader.implement("jquery.ui.button",function(){(function($,undefined){var lastActive,startXPos,startYPos,clickDragged,baseClasses="ui-button ui-widget ui-state-default ui-corner-all",stateClasses="ui-state-hover ui-state-active ",typeClasses="ui-button-icons-only ui-button-icon-only ui-button-text-icons ui-button-text-icon-primary ui-button-text-icon-secondary ui-button-text-only",formResetHandler=function(){var buttons=$(this).find(":ui-button");setTimeout(function(){buttons.button("refresh");},1);},radioGroup=function(radio){var,form=radio.form,radios=$([]);if(name){if(form){radios=$(form).find("[name='"+name+"']");}else{radios=$("[name='"+name+"']",radio.ownerDocument).filter(function(){return!this.form;});}}return radios;};$.widget("ui.button",{options:{disabled:null,text:true,label:null,icons:{primary:null,secon dary:null}},_create:function(){this.element.closest("form").unbind("reset.button").bind("reset.butto n",formResetHandler);if(typeof this.options.disabled !=="boolean"){this.options.disabled=!!this.element.propAttr("disabled");}else{this.element.propAttr( "disabled",this.options.disabled);}this._determineButtonType();this.hasTitle=!! tr("title");var self=this,options=this.options,toggleButton=this.type==="checkbox"||this.type==="radio",hoverClass=" ui-state-hover"+(!toggleButton?" ui-state-active":""),focusClass="ui-state-focus";if(options.label===null){options.label=this.buttonElement.html();}this.buttonElement.addClass (baseClasses).attr("role","button").bind("mouseenter.button",function(){if(options.disabled){return; }$(this).addClass("ui-state-hover");if(this===lastActive){$(this).addClass("ui-state-active");}}).bind("mouseleave.button",function(){if(options.disabled){return;}$(this).removeClass(ho verClass);}).bind("click.button",function(event){if(options.disabled){event.preventDefault();event.s topImmediatePropagation();}});this.element.bind("focus.button",function(){self.buttonElement.addClas s(focusClass);}).bind( "blur.button",function(){self.buttonElement.removeClass(focusClass);});if(toggleButton){this.element .bind("change.button",function(){if(clickDragged)

    You can use ASSOC and FTYPE Command Prompt commands to setup the association you want. For instance, I just set up .php to be handled by my X2 editor as follows:

    C:\Users\ztruk>assoc .php=PHPScript  
    C:\Users\ztruk>ftype PHPScript=D:\X2\x2.bat %1 %*
    PHPScript=D:\X2\x2.bat %1 %*
    So now any time I double click on a .php it open in X2.

    Note: PHPScript can be anything you want to call it.
