    This is a .REG file. This file, when run, will add several new items to the "New File" right-click context menu.
    Useful for programmers, modders and the like.
    This adds the following:
    .py file
    .bat file
    .asm file
    .html file
    .css file
    .ini file
    .js file
    .vbs file
    .c file
    .h file
    .dat file

    Why would you check using virustotal? It is a reg file and you can open them using a text editor, some will be more complex than you care for but always worth a look, especially as AV scanners will probably not know/look for everything.

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.py\ShellNew]
    "NullFile"=""
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.bat\ShellNew]
    "NullFile"=""
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.asm\ShellNew]
    "NullFile"=""
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.html\ShellNew]
    "NullFile"=""
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.css\ShellNew]
    "NullFile"=""
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.ini\ShellNew]
    "NullFile"=""
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.js\ShellNew]
    "NullFile"=""
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.vbs\ShellNew]
    "NullFile"=""
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.c\ShellNew]
    "NullFile"=""
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.h\ShellNew]
    "NullFile"=""
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.dat\ShellNew]
    "NullFile"=""

    i've had a virus or beter said worm in a txt file once, exploiting ms notepad. it was really irritating since it started random software when typing and it removed system files just for fun... better be carefull with any unknown file...

    This is very cool my man!
    The only issue I have is that some filetypes don't show up in the New list (namely .asm, which I use all of the time).
    Does Windows have a limit or something?

    Not that I know of, but if your menu was unmodified, it'd all fit. Do you have "Hide known file type extensions" off? It might be under a different name if not.
