TxtEditTxtEdit: Frequently asked questions
Use TxtEdit as default (or additional) editor for HTML files!
April 14, 2001
I use TxtEdit to write and edit web pages.  I would like to be able to set it as my default editor in Windows.  Under "Folder Options" I can have Windows call up TxtEdit to edit an HTML document, but it will not load the document into TxtEdit (as I will when I use NotePad).
  If you make TxtEdit your default editor under "Folder Options", you have to insert as application path:
..\TxtEdit\TxtEdit.exe "%1"
(for a standard installation of TxtEdit: C:\Program files\TxtEdit\TxtEdit.exe "%1")
instead of:
then it will work.
Associate TxtEdit directly to Text files
October 07, 2000
I like to associate files with the extension .TXT directly with your program TxtEdit v.2.2.0 in Windows 98, but when I try to make this association in Windows Explorer via View => Folder Options =>
File Types, the result is, that double clicking on a .TXT-file does start TxtEdit, but with an empty black screen, so I have to open the .TXT-file manually.
Is there a way to associate TxtEdit directly to .TXT-files?
  There is a way:
  • Choose "Text file" (.txt) in the Windows Explorer: View => Folder Options => File Types!
  • Click edit, select open and click again edit.
  • Now, for a installation of TxtEdit in the folder "C:\Program Files\TxtEdit", insert in the dialogue box, where one has to enter something for "Application used to perform action": 

  •          "C:\Program Files\TxtEdit\TxtEdit.exe" "%1"
  • The replacement parameter "%1" is needed to open the TXT-file that you have double clicked. It will now automatically be opened after TxtEdit is opened.

  • All the quotation marks, the space(s) between the two middle quotation marks and the replacement parameter are needed, because your folder name contains any "space". If your installation path does not contain any space, it works without (e.g. C:\Programme\TxtEdit\TxtEdit.exe )
