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.
First you have to include the shortcut in your SendTo menu. To do that, simply locate your SendTo folder. Its usually at
C:\Documents and Settings\User_Name\SendTo
where User_Name is the user name you use to log into your computer.
Now, locate Notepad.exe in your Windows directory. Right click on it and select copy. Go back to the SendTo directory and right click in the right pane. Click Create Shortcut in the context menu that appears.
Now, when you run across readme.1st, or read.me, you can right-click
the file's icon and choose SendTo Notepad to read the file.
