Edtting Ao_user_roaming.config in Windows 10

Hi guys,

Since upgrading to Windows 10, I am unable to edit the Ao_user_roaming.config file. In the good old (Windows 7) days I would double click on the Ao_user_roaming.config file and Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Tools for Applications would open and allow me to edit the file. Now when I do it Windows asks "How do you want to open this file?" and offers nothing suitable (except reliable old notepad).

I have installed Microsoft Visual Studio Tools for Applications 2015 but this doesn't help (and I can't even find where to launch this application from!).

Any ideas or suggestions...?

Regards and thanks in advance,

Stephen

    Are you the Administrator for your Windows 10 machine, per this SAP KBA? https://launchpad.support.sap.com/#/notes/2083067/E

    Just open it in Notepad? When it is not enough, use Notepad++?

    Thanks as ever Tammy, but the issue is not one of rights but of an application to edit the file.

    To Tobias's point, yes I could use Notepad but found it easier to do so in Visual Studio and would like to find a suitable alternative that works in Windows 10...
