copy files form Linux to Windows OS

I have got this file (I copied it form Linux gedit editor),,see the link please

How can I associate the file with any windows's editor (notepad, wordpad, any other third party program).

Right now I have to do it manually every time I would like to open the file.

Is this th case with all Linux editors ? or with some of them ?

To my knowledge windows must have a file extension like .mp3 to recoginze a file.
You'll have to rename the file to something like fdisk.txt

Maybe set up a batch file to do this if you need to do this all the time...

Select the file and press F2. Then press the right arrow key and type .txt

Just rename the file .txt or if you don't want to right click on it and click open with, then select the 'remember file association' button and select your editor.
