If you need a context menu option (right mouse click) for Notepad++ or other software you can use the following:

WARNING! Use at your own risk because you are messing with the registry!

Place the following in a file and change the extension to ".reg"
Change the path to where the ".exe" is -- The path is the "X:\\ProgramFiles\\nppp\\Notepad++.exe" part
Double click it

Code: Select all

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\Notepad++]

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\Notepad++\command]
@="X:\\ProgramFiles\\nppp\\Notepad++.exe %1"
