Is there a way to get a file to open with a certain program...

but not associate that entire file type with that program? Say I have a particular .doc file, but I want that file, and that file only, to be associated with Notepad but all other .doc files to open with Word. Is there a way to do that?

No way built into Windows. There might be a third party utility, but that's really obscure. Your best bet is to just right click the file and select "Open with..".
can u even count 30 in 1 second? no, u can't. so u can't tell difference between 30fps and 60fps. stupid. -Shinobier-

Rename it to a different extension then set that extension to open in the other program

Just right click the file and select "Open with".

Edit: You can also create a shortcut to the file and include the path to the program you want to open the file with in the target.
