How to replase windows notepad with notepad2

May I ask why you want to replace notepad.exe? You could much more easily just change the file associations.

Broken link? PM me and I'll send you the file!

None will work anymore Swift, you had your chances..

Now go and stop the:

-Anger

-threats

-begging

It won't help as I have been very very very honest with you all along and have given you ample chances.

You have not listened and it has to stop, as sinple as that.

Now go and stop all of this.

hi

this is due to the windows file protection (system file protection) - it can be turned off (but its not recommended) and then the files can be replaced in "save mode windows" start

i also recommend setting up file extensions to the new notepad--

-> explorer -> extras -> folderoptions -> file associations (or something like that -- i run the german version :D
