Maybe I'll go back to trying SciTe - I gave it a bit of a go, but wasn't successful.  Of all the information on the context-wiki, and the Pragma webpage - where would I go to find the most up-to-date information about configuring an editor to work with ConTeXt in Windows?

You could try Atom and install the ConTeXt module from github.com/massifrg/language-context.
Original language-context is outdated, but upstream didn’t react to mails from Massi and me.
This version also isn’t perfect, but I’m using and occasionally updating it. (I should re-base it on the current work done for the wiki.) There’s also still no run command.

Additionally you should install 
- language-latex (contains plain TeX commands)
- language-lua
- atom-ide-terminal (for running ConTeXt in place)
- file-icons (only icon package that contains TeX icons)
- pdf-view (not very good, but good enough for simple cases)

Best, Hraban
