Well, I don't want to just turn my back on notepad.exe, after all it has always been there for me, and has a 'really nice personality', it's just that EditPlus is cooler.
It's funny the things that you put off doing, that only take two seconds to do, but for some reason you don't do them. Basically, I've decided today that I'm going to put the EditPlus install folder in my search path, and associate it with .txt files. I'm not sure why I haven't done this before, I guess because I'm just used to sending 'everything' (i.e. MSG, XLS, MDB, DOC, DLL, EXE) to EditPlus every now and again, and the context menu is always there.
Today, WinKey + R => notepad [ENTER] becomes WinKey + R => editplus [ENTER] - ALT - F - N - N
Have a nice day.
Well, I put it in my path, so I can type 'editplus' in run rather than 'notepad', which I do 90% of the time. I've also created a shortcut with CTRL + ALT + N to bring up EditPlus, then CTRL + N for a new text file, or CTRL + SHIFT + N for a new HTML file.
Oh, and I fixed my HTML template file. Those all caps tags have been bothering me for years. I've actually fixed them a few times, years ago, but for the last few years I've just been highlighting the text and pressing CTRL + L to make them all lower case (below the doc type).. now it's correct from the start. Yay.
