    context menu UI corrupt with prolonged use


    window explorer right click context menu, with many different version of windows 10, or even on my 8 computer as well.

    when it goes bad, it'll show blacklines with unreadable portion in context menu when right click on a file, folder or desktop. sometimes it'll show all blank etc but generally the problem is likely the same and a restart with explorer.exe usually fixes it, until it happens again. with prolonged but mild usage, 2-3 days is limit, but much more frequent especially when working with a lot of thumbnails of hundreds if not thousands of images. forcing a restart explorer.exe in under 2-3 hours.

    I have read many things online to try and so far no help and if its a software I can't exactly test each software and wait days just isn't viable. also with 2-3 hrs usage when working heavily with thumbnail/images I am assuming maybe there is a limit explorer can store info, maybe thumbnail info and when it's full it corrupts menu.

    if there is such a thing, where and how can I increase this limit so I can work longer before restarting? storage space is not an issue.

    :)

  2. 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 UI corrupt with prolonged use :(

    CCC Context menu

    I was recently greeted to a new entry in my desktop context menu after installing 8.12 drivers with the Catalyst Control Center:


    context menu UI corrupt with prolonged use ati2.png


    I have no idea what the second entry does, since clicking it results in nothing happening.
    So I open up CCC and find this new section:


    context menu UI corrupt with prolonged use ati1.png


    It's completely disabled. I only have a single HD3850. The IGP on my mobo is nVidia, which is disabled anyway.

    I spent the last hour or so finding a way to remove the second entry, and this is the only thing I could find:
    Deleting this key removes both entries from the context menu
    Code: KEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\ACE[/quote] This solved one problem and caused another. I do not like the tray icon, so I have it disabled, so the only way I know to get into CCC is via the context menu. Does anyone know of a way to disable just the "Configure Additive Graphics" entry and keep the CCC entry?

    If I kept both disabled, is there some sort of shortcut I could make to get there instead? I don't want to have to go to Display->Settings->Advanced->CCC every time.
    EDIT: Just made a hotkey to get there. *Smile context menu UI corrupt with prolonged use :)

    Context menu shortcut for "Properties" corrupted

    The context menu on one laptop is corrupted. The Properties item uses the shortcut key "o" which conflicts with
    Open instead of "r" which all other Win10 computers use. Where is this located in the registry? I have search the registry locations for context menus mentioned in several forums (there are quite a few).
