    Visual Studio 2015 keeps getting standard file association for txt files

    Visual Studio will attempt to repair any broken file associations (those not associated with a valid application) at startup.
    I suggest the following two manipulations.

    • Check if txt is included in VS
      Tools -> Options -> Text Editor -> File Extension,
      and Remove in that case.
    • Go to
      Default Programs -> Associate a file type or protocol with a program -> Choose default apps by file type,
      scroll down to .txt and click, then choose your text editor if it is not already set correctly.

    If these two measures are not enough, then your Visual Studio setup has a problem.

    Generating a .txt based file list in Windows 7

    I want to be able to generate a .txt file that lists all the files and folders in a specific folder on my PC, but don't know the name of any programs that do that. Searched on google a bit and came up with this guide, but it's for XP and I can't seem to find some of the folder options to modify the .bat file. Any suggestions? Thanks

    http://www.theeldergeek.com/file_list_generator.htm

    EDIT: The .bat file will do what I want if it is in the folder I want to do it in, but the option I want to add is having the right click option that it shows.

    Generating a .txt based file list in Windows 7

    No, that > bla.txt is the target file to write to. You could use a wildcard in the argument, ie c:\windows\*.txt which would list all dlls in c:\windows. But adding that to a simple right-click would be tricky.

    Basically you would execute fancyfile.bat c:\windows\*.txt, fancyfile.bat would then write all .txt files to bla.txt.
