Adding New Default File Types To Right-click>>New List

Hey Guys,

I'm currently working allot with Python(.py) files on my Windows 7 install, And I tire of creating a blank text.doc and renaming the extension .py each time.

Can I add blank .py files to the list somehow so I can take one tedious step out of the process.

I have googled around a little for a tutorial on how to do this but fear I have not phrased the question correctly.

An explanation on how to do such or a link to the appropriate reference will be greatly appreciated.
