The author stated..........
"just wanted to jump in here and clarify one thing

there are two .reg files with the zip download
"notes_open_associated_file.reg"
"notes_open_themselves.reg"

you can run either one and accept the registry inclusion
and they make the .notes files behave accordingly"
and I think I found my source of trouble............ either one of the reg files may be run........ not both!!!

I merged both of those reg files into the registry on this 64 bit OS. In each case I got a msg that the merge was successful. However, the context menu only displays one choice for file notes and that opens Notepad with an empty file with a notes extension, which is what I wanted. Since the other option wasn't shown I searched the registry where I only have one option for filenotes. Applying a brilliant deductive process I reserve for private use, I deduced that the author's instructions that I could "run either" of the reg files meant just that and I couldn't run both of them as I "assumed".

If that's a correct assessment then I have what I wanted but Amando will have to use the alternate reg file to open the associated file? I haven't got my head around that side of the equation yet.
With a file Amando.jpg, we add a note making it Amando.jpg.note but when we click on that file Amando.jpg opens???
I'm confused and see no point in that. I must be wrong! Help!

Cuffy yes you should use one or the other not both of them

At the time I created it I did not think there was a reason to have both choices

the reason I created it in the first place was to be able to tag a file and then search
for a specific keywords in the *.notes files and just by pressing on the .notes file to
get the associated file

I have not had a resident antivirus or firewall running for about 5 years
with no major disasters or formats

its my personal laptop and no one else is using it

I do run Spybot, HijackThis, Autoruns, once in a while
I do use Firefox instead of IE
and I do scan my files with either AVG or BitDiffender
and sometimes I don't even run some files that are labeled "clean"

I have had to clean some malware and spyware manually in the past
that respected antivirus products could not detect
and that is when I have lost my faith in them
and gained trust in myself 

I think the most important thing when disabling the antivirus
is knowing which files and sources to trust and which not to

Oooh. I see. I misunderstood what the author wrote. I got the impression that clicking on the "notes" file would open the original (commented) file.

So it basically does the same thing as the "filenote" app from Moonsoftware (except for the "notes" extension + the icon) -- I like this new one ("file notes", with the the "notes" extension + the icon) better actually. The differentiation between a txt file and a note file is potentially very useful.

What would be neat is if any filename change would be automatically reflected in the " notes" file (ie : the "notes" name would be automatically adjusted accordingly) and if these were "glued" to the original files. They'd become real « tag sidecars »...


Thanks everyone for taking the time to work with filenotes
it was not meant for mass consumption as you probably already know
but I hope you enjoyed it nevertheless


just wanted to jump in here and clarify one thing

there are two .reg files with the zip download
"notes_open_associated_file.reg"
"notes_open_themselves.reg"

You can also go in any of these .reg files and change path to the filenotes.exe
so you can position it anywhere you want (changing lines 7 16 and 19)

but as armando already mentioned the two files are not glued together (its a very simple system)

If you need any further clarification, be my guest
