Windows 7 default notepad to open all unknown file extension
Posted on 2011-09-21
I have a need to have notepad be the default program to open all unknown file types. I can get this to work with WinXp by editing HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Unknown\shell\openas\command and changing the default value to Notepad.exe %1. However, this does not work for Windows 7. Does anyone have a way to make this work in Win7. I do not want an option to right click and open in Notepad or a send to option. I need it to automatically open in notepad for any files with unknown file types. Thank you.
