[texworks] how can I reset the editor that is called by typing "e" in the console bar?

Good day, all.  I have recently begun to use TeXWorks as a front end to
MikTex (which I have been using for many years, after switching to it from
emTeX), and I love it. I particularly love that I can easily switch from
a typeset chapter of the book I'm working on at the moment, to the TeX
source file of that chapter, nicely opened for me at the right line in

HOWEVER, in some cases I would prefer to simply type "e" in the console bar,
in direct reply to the TeX error message, and jump into the appropriate
file, as before opened for me in TeXWorks--but because of some setting,
somewhere, what I jump into instead is notepad.  (I am running all this under
Windows 7.)  This isn't the end of the world, but it is annoying.

Is this setting something I can change (surely it is), and if so, how?  It
appear to be a TeXWorks setting (though I think it ought to be...); is it a
MikTeX setting? a Windows setting?  A Google search has not been informative.
