Open File in External App

I am coming from Eclipse experience and I can't seem to find a way to open Markdown file in the application associated with .md file extension. The issue mostly comes from inability to configure TextMate bundles, but I still would like to know how to open file in the external editor especially if PyCharm has no knowledge of the file type such as .md.
If you want a file to always open in an external app, you can add its extension to Settings | File Types | Files opened in associated applications.

Note that there is a third-party Markdown plugin for PyCharm.
