Is it possible to set the default program and icon for files of a specific name? Particularly, I'm interested in setting the default program and icon for file names that typically come with open source software that don't have file extensions (e.g.
INSTALL, etc.). I know that I can set the default program for all files without an extension by adding a key named with only a period under HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT, but this is NOT what I want to do because I wish to use a different program (hex editor) for such files. Ideally I want to be able to use this icon for files named
COPYING and set the default program to Notepad++.
Again, please let me re-iterate, that I do NOT want to set the defaults for all files without an extension. I want to set the defaults for files of a specific name. If the file is named
COPYING or even
COPYING.txt, I want to to set the default program and icon for these files, but not for all files ending in
