Easily Use Notepad to Open a File

Enabling this setting will allow you to use Notepad to open a file by simply right clicking on the icon. Also the Notepad will be used to open the files by default if no association already exists.

Open your registry and find the key "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell", if it doesn't already exist then create it.

Under shell create a new key called open, and edit the string "(Default)" to read "Open With Notepad".

Under open create a new key called command, and edit the string "(Default)" to read "notepad.exe %1".

Now when you right click on a file you should see "Open with Notepad" as one of the options




Thanks to "Windows registry guide"
