    Open Regedit and navigate to:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ Software\ CLASSES\ .htm\ OpenWithList

    Create a key under that and call it whatever you want to appear in the Edit list under the toolbar button. In the example below you will see the program's icon (UltraEdit32) and it will say "Edit with Ultra Edit" When you're all done. It will also show up in the Tools/Internet Options... under the Programs tab, in the drop down list for HTML editor:.
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ Software\ CLASSES\ .htm\ OpenWithList\ Ultra Edit]

    Under the new key you created, create another key called shell.

    Under shell, create another key called edit.

    Finally, under edit, create a key called command.

    Now down to business, in the right Regedit pane of the command subkey you just created, right click on "Default Value", choose Modify and enter the path of the editor's exe that you want to use and add a space and %1. The example for our purposes is:
    "C:\Progra~1\Ultraedt\Uedit32.exe %1"



    Here's the website I got these instructions off of:
