Send To Notepad Shortcut
How can I quickly send files to Notepad for quick editing?
This is one of my favorite tweaks, and it will amaze you how you lived all these years without knowing it (or did you? you wouldn’t be here if you did…)
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.
