I would like to add an empty markdown file to the "New" context menu in Windows 8. I see at least two solutions to this problem, but neither of them work for me.
Is this possible? FWIW, a markdown file is a just a plain text file with a .md extension.
I made a .reg script as shown here.
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.md\ShellNew] "NullFile"=""
But, even after a restart, I don't see markdown under the "New" context menu. Here is my registry after running this script, which seems correct.
ShellNewHandler shows the markdown extension. Do I have to somehow add a template file?
