was wondering about nfo files and notepad


Recommended Posts

i was wondering about nfo files and opening them with notepad.

what i was hoping was to add a second icon to notepad which can be used as the icon for nfo and diz files. but i wasnt sure if there would be anyway to associate the file types in the registry with this icon that id have added to notepad.

yup i got that one included in the reg tweaks thing. i was just hoping there was a way to set the standard icon for nfo and diz icons to notepad.exe,1 or notepad.exe,2 depending on the icon place.

This is what I'm using:

"Content Type"="text/plain"




The last part is what controls the icon.

In your case it should be:


This can also be done for other filetypes, just make sure that the filename in [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Filename] is the same as the one under [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.extension] (the @="filename"-part). This is because of the relation between the extension and the filetype.

Take a look in the registry under HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT to get the idea of how it works with other known filetypes. For example .mpeg and mpegfile.
