    Creating a new registry enty for a new context menu entry


    For text editing and browsing a file's contents, I always use Textpad because it is a very sophisticated text editor. Also installed Notepad++ "just in case." NP++ has a neat context menu option "Edit with Notepad++" appearing in any context. In prior Windows versions the identical Textpad context menu option also showed up as "Edit with Textpad" but it no longer shows up on Windows 10 in any context. This option is controlled in Textpad's Preferences menu. Contacted the developers and they instructed me to execute the following in the command prompt window:

    Code: > cd "C:\Program Files\TextPad 8\system" regsvr32 ShellExt64.dll[/quote] But it just added the program to the "Open with" context submenu. So, I copied the Notepad Key, created another unique key number, changed the all values to point to TextPad and imported it into the registry, but nothing shows up.

    Here is the original Notepad++ key and my registry key copy modified:

    Code: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{B298D29A-A6ED-11DE-BA8C-A68E55D89593}] @="ANotepad++64" [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{B298D29A-A6ED-11DE-BA8C-A68E55D89593}\InprocServer32] @="C:\\Program Files\\Notepad++\\NppShell_06.dll" "ThreadingModel"="Apartment" [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{B298D29A-A6ED-11DE-BA8C-A68E55D89593}\Settings] "Title"="Edit with &Notepad++" "Path"="C:\\Program Files\\Notepad++\\notepad++.exe" "Custom"="" "ShowIcon"=dword:00000001 "Dynamic"=dword:00000001 "Maxtext"=dword:00000019[/quote] Code: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{B298D29A-A6ED-11DE-BA8C-A68E55D89595}] @="ATextpad" [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{B298D29A-A6ED-11DE-BA8C-A68E55D89595}\InprocServer32] @="C:\\Program Files\\TextPad 8\\system\\ShellExt64.dll" "ThreadingModel"="Apartment" [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{B298D29A-A6ED-11DE-BA8C-A68E55D89595}\Settings] "Title"="Edit with &Textpad" "Path"="C:\\Program Files\\TextPad 8\\TextPad.exe" "Custom"="" "ShowIcon"=dword:00000001 "Dynamic"=dword:00000001 "Maxtext"=dword:00000019[/quote] Is there a way I can get this to work?

    P.S: I have several Macrium backups, so please don't lecture me on the dangers of editing the registry. *Smile

    Creating a new entry in the context menu


    Hello from Germany.

    Is it possible to create a new entry in the context menu in "new"?
    I often need an empty paint-pic.
    For example:

    Creating a new registry enty for a new context menu entry

    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 Creating a new registry enty for a new context menu entry :(
