    How to make FileZilla as default app?


    Hiya, hope everyone doing well.
    I have FileZilla and Cyberduck installed in my Win 10 laptop.
    When I go to settings - default apps - choose default apps by protocolagainst URL: sftp protocol I see Cyberduck listed, on clicking it shows choose an app with options Cyberduck and Look for an app in MS Store.
    My query is how do I select FileZilla from here?
    All I want is to use FileZilla to handle sftp URL instead of Cyberduck.

    My Win 10 version is 21H1

    Maybe something about the setup on these pages will help:
    set up filezilla for sftp at DuckDuckGo
    Might also need to remove Cyberduck first.

    Thanks for your response. I tried that before. Even uninstalled Cyberduck and just kept Filezilla, still it won't show up there. Might have to use some registry hack to set it forcefully, don't know how to do that lol, that's where need help.

    Hello,

    Are you able to use the "Open with" context menu like in option 2 below to set it as the default app?

    So in that link you gave it will be option 6 (To Choose Default Apps by Protocol in Settings) I am trying but as I mentioned it currently lists CyberduckHow to make FileZilla as default app?-image.png
    and when I click on it, I get this pop-up

    as you can see Filezilla is not listed there, so I was wondering if you know any registry hack to set it forcefully :)

    You're going to have to use option 2 for the "Open with" context menu to select Filezilla instead.

    I am not sure how to do that option 2 requires me to select the file upfront and then choose default app to open with. How do I know which file to select for opening in Filezilla, its a FTP client?
