difficulties in creating a new file opened paint.net (commands register)


Recommended Posts

add a new item to the context menu for creating jpg file

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.jpg\ShellNew

create "NullFile"

 

If you complete this step, all right. The system without problems creates a new clean file format .jpg via the context menu.

 

But I would like to newly created file immediately opened with paint.net.

 

I create "Command" with parameter:

"C:\Program Files\Paint.NET\PaintDotNet.exe" "%1"

 

And this is where the problem arises. The file is no longer created, paint.net opens, but gives an error.

The file doesn't exist ... therefore Paint.NET can't find it. You're adding a command to the shell for creating a file, but then calling Paint.NET to ask it to open a file. "Create" is not "open."
