How do I associate .htm's Edit option with Notepad in Windows 7?

I have a number of files on my Windows 7 machine with .htm extensions. When I right click on these files I get a menu of options (Open/Edit/Print etc.) The EDIT option is currently mapped to Microsoft Word and I want to map it to Notepad.

"To change it without using 3rd party software:

Open Internet Explorer.
Go to Tools > Internet Options.
Select the Programs tab.
Change the 'HTML Editing' option to whatever you want to use (e.g. Notepad)."

I've used FileTypesMan on several occasions and it has performed as expected (opening in its own window but performing the same task)
