I don't know if this is the right forum for this question, although it is related to Windows XP

I want to add notepad++ to the right click (new menu) in Windows XP, I have followed tutorials like this (there are similar articles out there that describe the same steps and say that it will work on XP, this article is on many websites, because bloggers love to copy and paste :D)

but this kind of tutorials don't work on XP, I don't want to download software (Even if they are free) because I have tried some of these programs and they don't work either

I have Windows XP Pro, sp2, 32-bit

Why stay on SP2? – Not Kyle stop stalking me Oct 20 '11 at 22:58
Is there anything preventing you from uninstalling Notepad++ and reinstalling it? It adds the shortcut automatically on install from my experience. – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Oct 21 '11 at 0:58
Do you want for any file, or a specifc extension. – Zoredache Oct 21 '11 at 2:09
@kyle my internet speed is so slow, it will take forever to upgrade to sp3 – Lynob Oct 21 '11 at 7:11
@techie007 no it does not add a shortcut (on my pc at least) – Lynob Oct 21 '11 at 7:12
