Hi Bonnie,

the viewer and editor you configure in gnome-commander options are only
relevant when you hit "F3" (view) or "F4" (edit) on your keyboard while
the keyboard cursor is on the file of interest.

For changing the default programm when you double click on it there is
a section in the online documentation how to change it. Have a look


I hope this will help you.

Best wishes
