PC Magazines web site has a nice utility for editing the context
menu. Search (in ContextEdit) for .txt and double click. You
might want to read the help file also.
Here's the link;
The Notepad replacement editor Metapad that Jody recommended some time ago
(thx Jody) has as part of its install zip a regedit file that adds the keys
to make it (Metapad) available on the right-context menu for ALL file types.
I used it and if modified would do the same thing for NoteTab
--------- file contents ------
; replace the metapad.exe between the two \" with the full path to metapad
---------end file contets ------
Just replace metapad by notetab and save as "add_Notetab_Context.reg" or
something similar. Note: "&x" in "&xMetapad" above makes "x" the shortcut
(ie. rightClick+x opens the file in Metapad - I didn't want to "steal" the
normal "rightClick+m=Rena&me" usage.
BTW (Jody,Eric): Is there a reason that the shortcut menu inside Notetab
uses "Re&name" instead of "Rena&me"?
Harvey - thx for the ContextEditor link - it looks much "nicer", I'm d/l'ing
it now but this "quick and dirty" will get the job done.

choice to me since "R" is being used for Reload.
