Add “Open with Notepad++” in context menu


When portable version of notepad++ was installed, no useful feature like “Open with Notepad++” in context menu exists.

So, you can add it in such way:
Create and run file: OpenWithNotepad.reg

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\Open with Notepad]

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\Open with Notepad\command]
@="D:\\Portable\\Notepad++\\notepad++.exe %1"

To remove use next file RemoveOpenWithNotepad.reg:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\Open with Notepad]
