For Windows users that use file associations to automatically launch files in Vim, a gem I've found is, in a command prompt window:
Where txtfile has been defined as a file type that is opened with Vim. See VimTip1003, and try ftype /? at the command prompt.
This will cause files with no extension (e.g. "Makefile") to open automatically in Vim.
