    Notepad++ set the associations in settings > preferences > file association, click notepad and move via arrow, .txt to the right hand registered box.

    Open with is probably the better way though.

    Thank you both. Dalchina, I got Polyedit associated but then was having trouble figuring out setting the font in Editpad lite I think. Finally got both working and I think I like Editpad better.

    Just need to take the time to go back and change the icon for Editpad. Driving me crazy that all my docs are blue now.

    Thank you again.
