Here's an odd solution:

1. Create an empty batch file (.bat) file e.g. in documents which will be registered as a program.
2. create a shortcut to this bat file, remember this shortcut file cannot be deleted, as the start menu will point to this shortcut.
3. drop the shortcut on start menu.
4. go to properties of shortcut and enter the \\full\path\to\notes.txt document. also edit title to Note
