A couple weeks ago I downloaded a few different Windows 11 tweaker tools (sadly I cannot remember the name). I remember it had the option to add "Edit in Notepad" to the context menu. Since then I deleted most of those tools and am now stuck with "Edit in Notepad" in the context menu for nearly everything I click. I was hoping someone either would know the name of the software I used for this or how to remove it from the context menu.

@Hootis56

You didn't add it; Microsoft did. Now if you go back to the @Brink tutorial and download the Remove Edit in Notepad .reg file, unblock it, and Merge it, and then restart Explorer or restart your computer, it will work for you.
