You would need to highlight it using your left, right, up and down keys. Then, press the right-click key (it looks like this: http://ihearttech.typepad.com/photos/uncategorized/right_click_key.jpg) which will bring up the menu.

Press E to select the Edit option (which should automatically open Notepad), or you can press H and you will see a list of programs to open with, where you can select Notepad.

Is this what you were looking for?

Unfortunately not, the closest to that I can find is creating a shortcut to the notepad.exe, then editing its properties so that it has a shortcut key. (i.e. CTRL + ALT + N) That opens Notepad but there aren't any shortcut keys to open Notepad that way with the file.
