How do I add a item to the "New" context menu?
Can one use this to add entirely new file extensions in the registry?
For instance, there's a game I play that uses a scripting file (in reality nothing more than a plain text, but it's annoying to always have to go save-->all files--->.sqf)
I want to make it so that I can just spawn a new .sqf from the New menu, is this possible? What I have tried doing:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\ ---> (New Key --> .sqf) ---> (New Key ---> shellnew) --->(String "NullFile")
But nothing is coming up. Is there a way to do this?

Select relevant file extension or create one... ie .bat
Right click file extension and select New Key and name it ShellNew
In that key right click default and create a new string value called
FileName containing a valid path to c:\windows ShellNew\example.bat
NullFile leaving it's value blank.
The FileName method allows you to use a template file which may contain
in the case of a batch file @echo off as the first line.
The NulFile method creates an empty file.
Hope this helps.
