I've searched a lot but I cannot find a complete solution, I want to edit the file description in the explorer new file menu

now i have: Explorer right-click > New > Notepad++ Document to create a new CSS file

That's not useful if I want to add one new file menu item for example a PHP file, which is registrated to be opened by Notepadd++. I suppose if I add one more menu item it would be also Notepad++ Document

I would like to change that to new CSS file and have the filename to be style.css if it's a CSS file, now its New - Notepad++ Document.css

Does anybody have an idea how to change that?


Try the Default Programs Editor

From the page:

makes it easy to fix file association settings in Windows, including context menu items, icons, and descriptions. Also: autoplay settings and default programs settings ...all without fiddling around in the registry.

  • great! exactly where I was looking for and even more! thanks a lot – Dediqated Oct 11 '12 at 19:12
