Add "Open with Notepad" To The Context Menu


Blaugrana

Recommended Posts

As you already know when you try to open unknown files you are forced to go through a list of known applications to choose. 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. It's a simple registry hack technique which can also be used to substitute any other application that you’d like by adjusting the path in the registry to point to the different editor.

- Do it manually:

Open regedit.exe through the start menu search or run box and then browse down to the following key:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell

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

notepad.exe %1

The change should take effect immediately… just right-click on any file and you’ll see the next menu entry.

- Download the registry hack (includ. Remove Open With Notepad) :

This is not what it is supposed to do, the registry hack should add "Open With Notepad" option which you click and Notepad will open automatically. The open with ... option is already there. i checked both the add and the remove registry hack and both of them are working fine.

If you're using TuneUp Utilities - here's how to regain your Notepad (please don't install TuneUp if you don't have it.)

i use this regfile but still it wont able to restore the notepad option.

OK mate, now I understood the problem.

Please download these 2 registry entries and import them in the following order (very important):-

01.)__Remove_Notepad++.reg

02.)__Restore_Notepad.reg

Please reboot to see the effect. 8)
