I could do this easily with TextPad, then I got irritated with Textpad once I'd played with Notepad++.
Now that I've removed Textpad:
- I want Notepad++ to take over the right-click > Edit option in Explorer, and
- I want Notepad++ to come up when I type
notepadin the command prompt.
I know that Notepad++ has a shell extension that allows one to do right-click > Edit in Notepad++. But my old right-click > Edit link remains, and I keep finding myself clicking on it, only to be rewarded with an error.
