    I got a registry entry for my windows ME machine that adds "View in Notepad" right under Open in the right click menu.
    So if I have an NFO file, or a .bat file, I can just click View in Notepad and edit it from there.

    I can't seem to get it to work in XP.

    Is this even possible?

    If anyone has suggestions, please let me know and I will see if I can get them to work.

    TIA,
    joe

    Right click on a file then goto 'Open with'

    Select the program you want to use from the list then make sure the 'always open with' box is not selected. Click OK

    Now everytime you come across that file type again the open with (progam)' will be there!
