For files without extensions you have a couple of options.

1. Typically these files do not have a Windows file type association (because they don't have an extension) so they're opened using the Default file viewer and Default file editor which is defined within FlashFXP under Options > Preferences then General > View and Edit File.

One downside to this solution is that now every file without a file association shares the same program, which may or may not be appropriate for the content within the file. In an upcoming FlashFXP v5 release (currently in beta) you'll be able to select "Prompt to select program" from this dropdown list.

2. Add each exact file name and assign a specific file editor/viewer From within FlashFXP under Options > File Associations, Add the exact filename in the mask field i.e. Makefile and any additional files you want to open with this specific program and adjust the remaining settings as desired and then click the Save button.
