Ruby 1.9 and loss of Windows 'right-click/edit' option

    With Ruby 1.8 (Windows OS) I could right-click on a windows icon and
    there was an 'Edit' option that I could choose to open the program file
    using a text editor. Now that I've switched to Ruby 1.9, if I right
    click on the icon the 'Edit' option is not present. The only option is
    'Open' which just runs the program. To edit the program I now have to
    open the text editor separately and then navigate to the file.

    The option to just 'right-click and edit' was very handy, and its loss
    is sorely missed. Is there some settings in Windows that I can use to
    get it back? Or, can it somehow be included in the Ruby Windows
    installer?

    shift-right-click ,choose "open with" and you can reconfigure it. The
    ruby windows installer does not come with an editor.
