    Just to clarify: Did you "open with" it with Notepad, did you edit the text, did you "save as" or "save". You can open nearly any file with the "open as" command, but it doesn't ordinarily change the format or contents. There usually is a check box that says "always use this program for this file" (or similar) and if you had that ticked, then it would open your file using notepad anytime you double click it. Try doing the "open with"thing again and see if you can find your normal program for opening MPQ files and then just choose it as the default program again.

    Is this what you were looking for?

    If it doesn't work, go to folder options and un-tick the box saying "hide extensions for known file types". Then just edit the file's name by clicking on it only once, taking out .txt and replacing it with .mpq. This will only work if you didn't actually edit anything (I think) and if the extension has indeed been changed.
