Add "Open with Notepad" to the Context Menu for All Files

The default method of opening unknown files forces you to go through a list of known appliions and is erally a pain to dl with. That’s why I like to have a context menu option for “Open with Notepad” so that I can quickly open up files without having to go through a lot of trouble.This registry is nothing new, it’s been around forever… think of this as a refresher course. Also note that you can use this same technique to substitute any other appliion that you’d like by adjusting the path in the registry to point to the different editor.
Manual Registry :
Open regedit.exe through the start menu srch or run box, and then browse down to the following :

Right-click on “shell” and choose to crte a new , calling it “Open with Notepad”. Crte a new below that one called “command”. Double-click on the (Default) value in the right-hand pane and enter in the following:notepad.exe %1

he change should take effect immediately… just right-click on any file and you’ll see the next menu entry.Download Registry Just download, extract and double-click on the OpenWithNotepad.reg file to enter the information into the registry. There’s also an uninstall script included.Download OpenWithNotepad registry
