Lost association for folders on desktop

Here's an example of what i getwhen i tried to open a folder from desktop

A text editor starts and displays this
[Desktop Entry]
Name=jax's Home

I believe i may have somehow assiociated folders with text editors, but do not know how to change that association back.
