Find a txt file on your drive in Windows Explorer. Click once to highlite it. Hold the shift key down and while holding it down, right click on the file. You should now see the "Open with" option. Click that, choose notepad, check the box to always use it.

Anyone have any ideas how to get notepad++ to be associated with clicking on txt files again? (history below) Thanks. Raphael Question; how do I 'associate' all former notepad files with notepad++ (aka Notepad3)? Glitch; when I right-click on a notepad file, I no longer get the 'open with' option. Should I reinstall the Windows98 update? Will that straighten everything out, or will it 'preserve' my 'preferences', meaning, will it fail to correct things that are now wrong? - Users can unsubscribe from this list by sending email to 24hoursupport-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx with 'unsubscribe' in the Subject field OR by logging into the Web interface at http://web.tampabay.rr.com/spider1/24hrsupport.htm.
