if you've extracted the .zip file, have you tried right clicking the .asm file and selecting "Open With" and then either selecting or browsing to Notepad.exe
C:\WINDOWS\system32\notepad.exe

Thanks for reply - it helped. I am new to Win10 and have lots of other things going on so I lost my bearings. I "opened" the zip file rather than extracted the files from it - and there was no "Open with" option on a right-click. After "extracting" the files to a new folder, the "Open with" was back and allowed opening the files in question with Notepad.
