I suspect I wasn't clear enough.

Say I'm browsing a log and there is a .js file. If I select the 'Open' menu
item it will attempt to run this file using windows scripting host. If I
want to edit it I have to select 'Open with...' and find my editor.

I was suggesting that there should be an 'Edit' option in addition to or
instead of the 'Open' option. Taking a default from
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Unknown\shell\edit\command would probably be useful for
this. Also, assuming it is possible, it should check the result of either
open or edit and not just fail silently as it currently does.
