this is probably incredibly simple but it has been a while since i have set up a new installation

i installed ubuntu mate 17.10 a bit over a week ago. by default when i click on a txt file i want to edit it (i prefer KATE). it keeps attempting to run my files rather than edit them. what do i do to sto pit form asking me this (on a simple click, if i wanted massive complexity like right click and then select to run KATE i would run something stupid like windows)
