    Hey there Fortunella74,

    How are you doing today?

    This should definitely be possible to do by going to Defender -> Hardener, scroll down to Disable the file editor, expand it and click Revert button. Please see screenshot:

    With that said I'd strongly suggest not using WordPress editor for editing files, especially PHP files which can easily cause a lot of issues. From my experience what can happen quite often is that file is not properly formatted when saved which can cause a fatal errors.

    Hope this helps :slight_smile:
