How can I open a file without (permanently) associating it with a file type?

For example, I'd like to open gradle-app.setting as a text file without associating *.setting with text files (which would be meaningless).

Hi Peter,

As far as I know, you can't open it from within IntelliJ.

Hello Peter,

For example, I'd like to open gradle-app.setting as a text file
without associating *.setting with text files (which would be
meaningless).


You can associate a specific name (gradle-app.setting), rather than *.setting,
with the text file type.

have a look at "Open With" plugin
this plugin allowes opening any file with any editor (like in Eclipse)

don't expect a lot from this plugin
e.g. due to IDEA's internals this plugin can't be used in code navigation: if you ctrl+click on symbol IDEA will ask to associate file.
anyways, this plugin is very useful
