Right click menu in Win98 Explorer

Hello
When I right click a file in Explorer on one computer I get the choice of opening the file which gives a choice of the different programs I can use in a second sub menu.
On another computer I get the first sub menu but only the choice of opening the file.
This means that when I want to edit an HTML file for instance, the "open" choice just pulls in the file with Internet Explorer when really I want to edit it with notepad or editpad.
The "edit" option pulls in one of my WYSIWYG html editors.

Is it possible to change the options in the drop down right click menu in Explorer?

Thanks in advance
Keith

hold down the SHIFT key and right click the file - that should give you the OPEN WITH option .

It does - many thanks!
Not quite as good as the second drop down menu with a choice of relevant editors but that will do fine
Thanks again
