There are many threads about this on the forum
One way could be this :
make a .reg file

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\Open with my_au3program.exe]
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\Open with my_au3program.exe\command]
@="C:\\my_au3program.exe \"%1\""

and here is an example of "my_au3program.au3" to be compiled to "my_au3program.exe"

$file = $CmdLine[1]
msgbox(0,"", $file)
