Quite apart from the technicalities, the question remains whether users could make the "edit" action the default for a double-click. I could see a case for not having Stata execute a do-file immediately, but rather just open it...

To change your settings you should not go to the popup 
menu. Instead you need to do it within Stata. So, you 
open Stata, in the top row you see the menus "File", "Edit",
"Data", etc. click on "Edit", go to "preference" (at the 
botom), click on "Restore File Associations" (again, at 
the bottom).

After you have done that, you can right click on a .do file
and will show a number of options, how they are called 
depends on the language settings of your Windows 
instalation: the relevant top two are apparently called 
"Open" and "Edit" in English/American instalations, while
they are, for example, called "Oeffnen" and "Bearbeiten" in
German installations. Anyhow, you want the latter in order
to open your .do file in the do file editor.

Hope this helps,
