After populating quickfix window using commands like :vimgrep, when I jump to a quickfix entry using cc <number>, if the file corresponding to that quickfix entry wasn't already opened in a buffer at the time of performing :vimgrep, it get opened with no syntax highlighting.

How can I make sure that files opened by commands like cc or ll do show syntax highlighting?

    This doesn’t happen for me, at least with syntax enable and filetype on, unless the filetype isn’t detected. Perhaps How to debug my vimrc? – D. Ben Knoble May 14 at 10:04
