I love VIM. It’s my favorite IDE. I also hate notepad. It’s extremely primitive and in no-way intuitive. For that reason, I set GVIM ( Graphical VIM ) as the default text editor in my Windows environment — here’s the command:
ftype txtfile="C:\Program Files (x86)\Vim\vim73\gvim.exe" --remote-tab-silent "%1"
Please note, this command must be run as an administrator. Click start, type “cmd”, right click “cmd.exe” and click “Run as administrator”.
