It is somewhat abandoned.
I want to use emacs like I use notepadd++ on windows. That is:
Here are the steps I took:
Create the context menu like this (global_context_emacs.reg) :
REGEDIT4 [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell] [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\openwemacs] @="&GNU Emacs" # The above value appears in the global context menu, # i.e., when you right click on a file. # (The '&' makes the next character a shortcut.) "Icon"="C:\\Program Files\\Emacs\\bin\\emacs.exe,0" # The above uses the icon of the Emacs exe for the context # and should match the path used for the command below. # The ,0 selects the main icon. [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\openwemacs\command] @="C:\\Program Files\\Emacs\\bin\\runemacs.exe \"%1\"" # The above has to point to where you install Emacs
Create a batch file called runclientw.bat and compile to exe and associate file types as needed. See here
