I've recently managed to make it so that i can right click on my desktop and go to new and then make a new .html file. I was wondering if there was a value or something that i could add to the ShellNew key in the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT/.html so that when i create a new file it is a basic .html file and not just empty like a new .txt (so it would have the whole <html><head></head><body></body></html> deal in it).
