    This code works fine for me in 10:

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell\NotePad]
    @="&Note Pad"
    "Icon"="C:\\Windows\\System32\\notepad.exe"
    "Position"="Top"
     
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell\NotePad\command]
    @="C:\\Windows\\System32\\notepad.exe"

    I want to see "open with notepad" when i right click an item. your code simply opens notepad when right clicking in on a non-item.

    Hi, try Open++ if what you are trying to do is to add an item to 'Open With'.
    Open++ Download - Softpedia

    (I see Notepad as an option now anyway).

    Sure, just edit the .reg file with the path of the .exe file you want to use instead.
