hogan,

I'm with mishbal if you want it done correctly.

Go to View>>Folder Options, click the FileTypes tab, scroll to the Configuration Settings entry, click the Edit button, choose open, click the edit button again and type in C:\WINDOWS\NOTEPAD.EXE under "application used to perform action"

When you choose open with... and select Notepad, it creates these crazy entries in the registry that look like this:
ini_auto_file

This happens for most all files you select using this method.

Place a shortcut to Notepad.exe in your sendto folder and then when you right click on the file you can send it to notepad.  Works great!!!

Or hold down the shift key while you right click on an .ini file, choose Open with... from the context menu, and then choose Notepad to do the opening; make sure there is a check mark next to Always use this program to open this type of file.
