Add Notepad++ to the context menu

This little regedit keeps coming in handy.  Thought I’d add it here so it’s easy for me to find and the other 2 of you that read this blog.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\Open with Notepad++\command]
@="\"C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Notepad++\\notepad++.exe\" \"%1\""

ContextMenuSave that into a file with the extension .reg and double click it to add to the registry.  You’ll now see Open with Notepad++ in the context menu.

Pretty awesome, eh?  You can add whatever else you like to your context menu as well.  As always though be cautious when modifying the registry.

I’ve seen people wreck, destroy, obliterate their machine fiddling with things they shouldn’t have.  With that said, have fun doing it!
