  2. Add option to context menu to open file type

    By default, Windows will open a MIDI file with Windows Media Player on double-click. This is fine. However, I'd like to add the option to open MIDI files to the context menu (right click).

    As it is, to open a MIDI file with MuseScore (my current preferred software), I have to do: Right click > Open With > Choose Another App > More apps > (scroll to find MuseScore) > OK.

    This is too many steps. How can I get the context menu to offer MuseScore as an option in it's menu - or at least as an option in "Open With"?

    Thanks!

  3. Custom context menu entries

    So, just throwing this out there, in case somone knows.

    I have added a custom context menu entry for the program rightload, since by default the menu is broken in vistax64.

    It works pefect with single files, but when I select mutiple files and try to open, I get mutiple instances of the program (which makes sense), here is my entry:

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Rightload\Rightload.exe --server=1 --autostart %1

    So the %1 passes the filename to the program, and when I select multiple files it is just opening multiple instances of rightload each with a different file.

    What I'd like to do is be able to pass a list of the files selected to the program. Since I know it is capable of uploading multiple files from the context menu, all in one instance.

    So, is there something I can pass besides %1 that will do this? I have looked around and can't seem to find an answer anywhere... *Frown context menu is missing the 'OPEN' option :(
