Currently there is no internal viewer - when you tap on a file name, TC should open the associated program, or show a list of available programs. For doc and txt, there should already be a preinstalled office app from Microsoft.

Issue are more specific because I want to view file without extension, like log file from website. Office can't do that ;> Different extensions.

Ah, I see - you are right, Windows Phone is very limited in this regard, it doesn't allow to open files with user-specified programs. It all goes via extensions only. I will check how complex it would be to write my own editor.

With Windows 10 Developer Preview I can't even open simple txt files now. (8.1 could do it...)
Office Word's plaintext support was dropped completely, it's handling docx files only now.

Furthermore, all WP text editor apps I tried are really bad. Fake demos, clunky UI, and misnamed "editors" in view-only mode.

I fondly remember CE Total Commander; Its built in 64k text editor was great on Windows Mobile 6.

I often miss the ability to hit Shift+F4 to create a new file in the current working directory and quickly edit it.

The good news: The next version will include one!
The bad news: I will have to limit it to 200kBytes. Why? Both the TextBox and the RichEditBox controls on Windows phone become horribly slow even for such small files.
