"You can add items for a specific file type by selecting Tools -> Folder Options -> File Types -> Advanced and adding a new action.

If I look at the ""open"" entry for a .txt file I see ""C:\WINDOWS\system32\NOTEPAD.EXE %1""; the ""%1"" passes the name of the file into the program script and can be accessed in your script by using the ""%1"" variable name rather than ""INFILE"".
