Depends on the file. if its a .doc i go to menu of LibreOffice and use open file

If its say a system file and i just want to look at it say at /var/log called pacman.log i might use:
[[email protected]:~]$ cat /var/log/pacman.log | head

for edit of something i might use any of geany, vim, nano eg for php probably geany
