This question already has an answer here:
I have Python 3.2 on a windows 7 operating system. The other day I thought that it would be convenient to add a link to create a new
.py file in the right hand click "new" menu. I had worked with the registry before and looked up how to add an item to the "new" menu, but when I got to the registry under
.py extension key was not there. I only know how to add something to the "new" menu using the extension key. I searched the web, but could not come up with any other ways. Python works perfectly fine, and I don't want to mess anything up by adding the extension key. So here are my questions:
Will I mess up python or something else by adding a
.py key?( I know it is dangerous to work with the registry, that is why I am looking for a safe solution)
If not how can I go about doing this?
Is there a different way to add "create a new python file" to the "new" menu? If so how can I do it?
If the only way is very complicated should I forget about it?
Thank you in advance.
P.S I originally posted on Stack Overflow that they told me to move it over here.
