You can simply call:
Which will run the program associated with txt files. If you want to be sure that notepad will get launched:
System.Diagnostics.Process.Start(@"notepad c:\...\file.txt");

You can configure a lot of things about how the program will run. If you want to do some fine-tuning, go and read about the Process class.
