How to Add Open with Notepad to Context Menu
If you want to open a file type not registered with Notepad, you can add an "Open with Notepad" option to the Context Menu when right-clicking files.



1. Open Registry Editor by typing regedit into Start Menu search box.

2. In the Registry Editor, use the left sidebar to navigate to the following key:

Code:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell


3. Next, you’ll create a new key inside the shell key. Right-click the 'shell' key and choose New --> Key. Name the new key “Open with Notepad”.



4. With the new command key selected, in the right-hand pane, double-click the (Default) value amd select Modify from context menu.



5. In the “Value data” box, type the following text and then click “OK.”

Code:

notepad.exe %1




The changes should take place immediately.
