Say I'd like to open any Makefile with MS notepad. Is it to make such an association?

Binding notepad to any file without suffix is not a nice solution.

Add an extension to your makefile and bind that type to notepad, could be something like .mkf, but do you really need that association?. If your using any command line you could edit the file executing notepad MakeFile.
