Unable to delete EDIT item in context menu
Running 64 bit Windows 7 SP1 with all updates
I've been cleaning up my context menu and I have it right where I want it except for one item which I have been unable to find out how to delete regarding text (.txt) files.
I use UltraEdit as my text editor and have set it as the default program to use for text files. When I right click on a text file there are two selections displayed that will open the text document for editing - OPEN and EDIT. If I click on OPEN the default program (UltraEdit) indeed opens with the text file displayed and ready to edit as desired. However if I click on EDIT, Notepad opens with the file displayed and ready to edit. It's no big thing but this will gnaws at me until "I get it the way I want it" and I want the EDIT selection gone.
I can't figure out and haven't found it on the web how to keep EDIT from appearing on the contaxt menu nor can I determine how EDIT is being associated with Notepad. If it insists on being there why isn't it using UltraEdit like I specified...Windows appears to be obfuscating that information but there has to be a way to do this?
I'd appreciate a little help on this one...
