I tried to change the default text EDITING tool from notepad to notepad++, but for whatever reason it doesn't work. Note, that I DON'T want to make notepad++ the default program to open these kind of files. Thats a different issue. I want it to open when you rightclick a .txt file and click on 'edit'.
I've written a little .reg file
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations\document\shell\edit\command] @="\"C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Notepad++\\notepad++.exe\" \"%1\""
The .reg file works alright, the value is changed. However, when rightclicking a .txt file and clicking 'edit', instead of opening the file in notepad++, Windows just opens the file dialog, asking me whether I want to continue opening this type of file with Notepad++ (which is already preselected).
What do I do wrong, how can I resolve this issue?
