Windows 7 Ultimate x64

THANK YOU!!!! Just noticed today that my New menu was missing text file and rich text file. Tried many, many solutions to no avail then found the above. Worked like a charm!!!

Edit, now to make it create a Notepad++ file as default.
Edit2, Hmm, .txt files used to have the Notepad++ icon, now Notepad++ opens the file, but the icon is the default Notepad one.

Update: I couldn't find a way to make the icon anything but the default text icon. Until today that is. Without doing anything at all, text file icons are now showing as Notepad++ icons. Weird.......

EDIT: Even stranger, the New Menu also lost the Text Document menu again. I had to use the above to reinstate it. Gotta love MS!
