I searched high and low for a registry setting to change this but to no avail. Certainly there must be a way to change this. Then a colleague pointed out simple way. Right-click on the source file and select “Open with…” You’ll get the following dialog.

Select the code editor and click “Set as Default”. Couldn’t be easier.
