    Excellent answer! Do you want to add this screenshot to your answer? – orschiro Sep 6 '16 at 15:53

  • In Windows you could do this without any customization, on Linux customization is needed, but default is the way on the screenshot which is also not bad – Кристиян Кацаров Sep 6 '16 at 15:59
  • Actually I do not see any "Open With" menu on folders. – rugk Oct 25 '16 at 17:50
  • At least in Gnome 3.20.4, you can configure Gnome Files (nee Nautilus) to run Atom against the current folder. In the screenshot below, I'm using the Nautilus-Actions Configuration Tool (nautilus-actions package): !text – richbl Dec 16 '16 at 18:43

Have you tried the Custom Action in the Edit menu! enter image description here Press the big green plush sign to ad another custom menu entry! This brings up another selector! enter image description here Fill this in, and make relevant selections from next tab, try it out a few times to get it right! Thats it, you are good to go!
