    A while ago I found a way to swap the windows notepad application with a new text editor, yet maintain the notepad name. I would like to do this again, but forget how.

    Can someone please help me?

    Thank you,

    Brad

    Why you need the notepad name? I suppose you could simply rename the file notepad.exe to notepad2.exe and then rename the other text editor to notepad.exe, but I don't know why you would want to do that?
