Wordpad vs Notepad

By skywarriora3 ·
On my Windows 98 machine at work if I open a text file that is to large for Notepad, I'm asked if I would like to use Wordpad instead.

On my Windows 98 machine at home this also used to happen. Now all I get is a message that the file is to large for notepad and to use another text editor.

I'd like to use the automatic prompt to use Wordpad. How do I get my home machine to do that.

Open my computer and click on view

click on file types

scroll down until you see text document

highlight text document, and select edit

hit edit

in the dialog box, click on open

change notepad.exe to wordpad.exe

( you can also change this to MS Office if you have it )
