Is create an entry in the main contextual menu. Not in the secondary "new context menu" (in the screenshot in spanish "Nuevo")

Ghacks did a writeup on Fast Explorer 2008 some time back. It's not the most intuitive software I've used but it gets the job done.

-I have no idea what a Notepad++ document is, other than a normal text file (for which I will use Ctrl+Shift+t).

Is it only a .txt file's context menu that you want to add something to?

If you don't need to automate this to do it often, in XP you can manually add an entry to a .txt file's main context menu thru the Folder Options, File Types tab

I'm still not sure what action you want to have happen when you click on your new context menu choice.

Be careful.  Probably worth backing up your registry (set a restore point at least) before doing this.  The context menu stuff is all saved in the registry.

Click on the 'TXT   Notepadd++Document' line in the window, then click the 'Advanced' button. If you highlight any of the 'Actions' and then click 'Edit', you will see how they are set up.  You can add one by clicking 'New' and filling in the blanks.  Here is where you'd have to define the action you are looking for, and to help with that you'd have to be clear about what you wanted.

It's possible all you want to do is modify the action taken when you select 'Edit' or 'Open' from your context menu.  In that case, simply edit the existing dialogs.

Be careful.  Backup first.

Finally I solve in this way :

Applying a script from here :

http://www.donationcoder....x.php?topic=31333.new#new

and adding the option of a standard generic txt file.

I think you are talking about Windows 7

I think in windows xp pro is not possible my required configuration.

And Windows 7 have several new hotkeys that don't go in windows xp pro sp3

how to create the entry in the main contextual menu for creating an empty txt file

ah, wait.  Do you want to add something to a Folder/Directory context menu that will create a new .txt file and perhaps open it in Notepad++?  Those menus are in the File Type tab under 'Folder' and 'File Folder'.  Be very very careful, but the same technique applies.  For the action to open a new file in Notepad++ you'd put in the same commands you'd use on a command line.  As for simply creating a file, that's probably not too difficult.

hmm... I have just tested both Right Click Enhancer and Notepad++, and it turns out that the "Notepad++"-option in the above picture of a context menu is not from RBSoft's application, as I expected it to be, but from Notepad++ itself! So all you should do is to re-install (a new version of) Notepad++ , and you will have the entry you were asking for!
