Visual Studio as default editor

Hello,

I am new to Github. I just downloaded Github desktop. I want to change my default editor to Visual Studio. When I follow the directions and go to options and then click on the drop-down to change the default editor only notepad++ is showing as an option for my default editor. I have Visual studio 2019 community version on my computer and have been using it for school and I want to set it as my default editor for Github desktop. I am learning C++ currently.

Hi deasn789! I’m afraid only some editors can be set as the default option in Desktop. VS Code is supported, but Visual Studio itself is not, sorry!

Hi yamiacat,
ok, now VS2019 is not supported, but in the future ?
It’s possibile add it as a new feature for next release ?

Best regards
Paolo
