If you frequently develop VB scripts and use Notepad for editing, then you can use this decent free VBSEditor which also offers syntex highlighting. This is a single EXE file and doesn't require any installation.
Following steps will add an entry into context menu for VBS files to edit those files in VBSEditor.
- Create a folder called "VBSEditor" in "C:\Program Files\" and drop VBSEditor.exe in "C:\Program Files\VBSEditor\"
- Copy-paste the following text in a plain-text file and save the file as vbseditor.reg.
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
@="VBScript Script File"
@="Edit with &VBSEditor"
@="\"C:\\Program Files\\VBSEditor\\VBSEditor.exe\" \"%1\""
- Double-click on the saved vbseditor.reg to import required registry settings.
Now you can right-click on any VBS file and select "Edit with VBSEditor" for script editing.
