Associate file types. How can I associate .java or .jsp (or whatever) file types with IDEA in Windows?

Ann Oreshnikova

It is not possible to associate *.java or *.jsp files in Windows so that they are automatically opened in IDEA, since IDEA is not just a java-file editor, but it is a project-based application. Thus, you can only associate the *.ipr (IDEA project) files with IDEA.
