Do you ever need to edit or view a file that doesn't have a .txt extension in Notepad (or the favorite viewer of your choice)?
There is a quick and easy way to do this. Just create a shortcut to Notepad.exe in your SendTo folder. This folder is normally located at C:Documents and SettingsUsernameSENDTO.
Now to view the file, just right click on it and choose SendTo->Notepad. You can do this from the Explorer or even a File Open dialog box!
