no txt file in new context menu

By Jora ·
When I use File/New or right mouse button New no txt or notepad file is there. I use TweakUI but in vain. Any suggestion to fix the problem?

You'll need to amend the registry for this one.
If you need to add a .txt file to the New menu, go to the key HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.txt There should be a key called "ShellNew", if not add it.
Open this key, and there should be a string_value of "NullFile", if not, add it. And that should add "Text Document" to your New Menu.

See for more information.
