Sublime text allows you to open folders as projects. I'd like to be able to do this from the Windows Explorer, but there is no Open With menu item for folders.

How can I add that option?

Normally I'd recommend Default Programs Editor for this task, but it doesn't support editing context menus for folders.

However, you can do it with a quick registry key. Take this, edit it to your app path, save it as whatever.reg, and double click to merge into your registry.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Folder\shell\sublime]
@="Open with Sublime Text..."

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Folder\shell\sublime\command]
@="\"C:\\your\\path\\to\\sublime_text.exe\" \"%1\""
