Moved to the appropriate forum, as the Developer General Discussion forum very clearly states:

hi dear
you can do Such as the following
first choose your ext that you want to add the entry on it
if you want to add it to all exts then use *, or you can use .text for examples
then select your name and icon and your script / program path

#RequireAdmin
$ext = ".txt"
$name = "open with notepad"
$icon = "c:\test.ico"
$path = "c:\Windows\system32\notepad.exe" & " %1"
if not ($ext = "*") then
$read = RegRead("HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\" & $ext, "")
if @error then
$ext = StringReplace($ext, ".", "") & "File"
else
$ext = $Read
endIf
else
$ext = "*"
endIf
$HKCR = "HKCR"
if @OSArch = "x64" then $HKCR = "HKCR64"
RegWrite($HKCR & "\" & $ext & "\shell\" & $name, "", "reg_sz", $name)
RegWrite($HKCR & "\" & $ext & "\shell\" & $name, "Icon", "reg_sz", $icon)
RegWrite($HKCR & "\" & $ext & "\shell\" & $name & "\command", "", "reg_sz", $path)
exit
