If you'd like to use Notepad as your editor for most text files, why not add it to SendTo? With Notepad in SendTo, you'll have it handy for looking at unregistered text files and won't have to bother registering a bunch of files types.
Run Windows Explorer and locate your SendTo folder. Now open \Winnt\System32 and locate Notepad.exe. Use the right-mouse button to drag its icon to your SendTo folder. When the menu opens, choose Create Shortcut(s) Here. You can now close Windows Explorer (if you wish).
Now, when you run across a text file, you can right-click the file's icon and choose SendTo Notepad to read the file.
