I often just need to create a
notes.txt file in Windows to just quickly paste some text from some other place, save it from the
gvim UI, and close the file. I want to be able to perform this operation quickly without having to press
i on the keyboard, and
gvim is my editor of choice on Windows and all files with the
.txt extension have been associated with
So, I want to configure my
_Vimrc so that when a
.txt file is opened, insert mode is enabled by default. For other files, if at all possible, starting in command mode is preferable as I often start a
gvim session by jumping to a line number in command mode.
If the above is not possible, then how can I simply configure
gvim to start in insert mode?
