Can’t open JS files in Windows from Filezilla

Windows is trying to execute your .js file instead of opening it in an Editor. This is not a programming problem. It’s a file association problem.

If the javascript has references to the HTML doc object mannequin (DOM), then you’ll have issues operating it like it’s a VBScript. It’s because the script is designed to carry out operations on an HTML doc inside an internet browser.

I had the identical difficulty and glued it by doing the next in Filezilla:

1. Go to Edit > Settings
2. Go to the ‘File editing’ section
3. Under ‘Default Editor’: Ensure that Notepad++ is selected as your custom editor
4. Change the radio button from ‘Use filetype associations if available’ to ‘Always use default editor’
