Send To Notepad Shortcut
How can I quickly send files to Notepad for quick editing?

Passwords Haven’t Disappeared Yet
123456. Qwerty. Iloveyou. No, these are not exercises for people who are brand new to typing. Shockingly, they are among the most common passwords that end users choose in 2021. Research has found that the average business user must manually type out, or copy/paste, the credentials to 154 websites per month. We repeatedly got one question that surprised us: “Why would I ever trust a third party with control of my network?
The easiest way of all is to do the following:
- Go to %SystemDrive%\documents and settings\%username%\sendto (or \Windows\SendTo in Win9X).
- Right-click in the right hand panel and select New > Shortcut
- Create a new shortcut to Notepad.exe in the sendto folder.
Now if you right-click any REG, TXT, VBS, CMD, DAT, NFO etc. file, you can choose the Send To menu and send the file to Notepad which will immediately open it for editing.
BTW, you can do this with any Notepad replacement you’re currently using. Read Free Notepad Replacements for more info.
