What it's doing is diddling a Windows registry setting that specifies
what the default program for editing text files is.

I use an editor called Notepad2-mod
(, which is a fork of Florian
Balmer's open source Notepad2 product. Like TextAdept, Notepad2 uses
the Scintilla edit control to get syntax highlighting and code
folding. Notepad2 and Notepad2-mod can both be configured to replace
Windows Notepad via that registry hack.

I wouldn't use TextAdept in that role - Notepad2-mod invokes
instantaneously and has all the features I need for what I normally
do. TextAdept would be overkill. But it's good you *can* use the
same technique to make it the default editor.

Thanks for the share.
