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...)
Active Directory Management Software will be part of Spiceworks’s 5.0 release in Sept 2010. Spiceworks’ Active Directory will let you manage user accounts and passwords, link devices to specific users, and view all help tickets opened by a specific user. All for free!
Download Spiceworks 4.7 now, and you’ll be automatically alerted when Spiceworks 5.0 is available - and it will still be free!
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.
