To select an alternate text editor
  1. Type mtexted and then press Enter.
  1. Enter the path and name of the executable file for the text editor you want to use to create or edit multiline text. For example, to use Microsoft Wordpad, you would type something similar to the following (adjusting the path name as necessary):

C:\Program Files\Windows NT\Accessories\Wordpad.exe
