Haven't tried it but am thinking that you could edit the file type involved
in Folder Options> File Types. Add "Open with Notepad" as an action.

Create a shortcut to notepad on your desktop.
Go to Start>Run>and type: *sendto* (without the **)
Drag the shortcut you just created into this window.

Select a file type and click Advanced. A new screen appears. You'll see the
place to add a new action on that screen. The following URL is for a very
old MS Knowledge Base article but it outlines the same principles being
discussed:

C:\WINDOWS\NOTEPAD.EXE "%1"


For all files without an extension:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.
(Default)
REG_SZ
NoExtension

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\NoExtension

REG_SZ
Files without extension

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\NoExtension\Shell\Notepad\Command

In the C:\Documents and settings\YOUR NAME\SendTo Folder

Create a new Shortcut to Notepad.exe and name it Notepad.

In Windows explorer, highlight the file you want, right click, and in the
SEND TO menu option expand to Notepad, voila! This is extremely useful for
logs, dlls's, cfg fils etc.

Works with any windows version 95 onwards. If you have the old Sendto
Powertoy, it can also be used on SP2 as well.
