Windows 7: Making the 'edit' option on batch files open in notepad++

Making the 'edit' option on batch files open in notepad++


Tonight it seems like I have really got myself into a pickle. As the title says I tried to change the default editor for batch files. I dinked around in the registry a bit, and I now have myself this. Any suggestions to actually making it work?

Thanks for any help!
EDIT: I know it seems dumb I did all of this because there is an option a couple slots below to open in notepad++... I was just tired of myself actually clicking the windows native 'edit' option and my code coming up in notepad.
