    Edit or an editor for the context menus


    My context menu is a mess. Items that I never use, or apps added themselves but not wanted, and vice versa. Older apps that offer setting to be listed, no longer work function in W10 1909.

    I am trying to add them manually and remove those which I don't want. e.g: I have double entries but when I search the registry, they don't exist?
    Looked through the Context menu related tutorials, but not sure if there is one that would help me.
    Otherwise, I need a reliable context editor that would let me clean the mess.

    :)

    Context menu edit

    Hello Ivan, *Smile

    You could manually edit the folder context menu via Registry Editor, but it can be a bit involved.

    Was there anything specific you were wanting to do?

  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 Edit or an editor for the context menus :(

    Edit or an editor for the context menus

    How do I edit the File Explorer context menu without editing the registry?


    Edit or an editor for the context menus 6e57053f-a7d1-40a8-be3b-99176e46073e.jpg


    This is how my right-click menu looks like in File Explorer with the apps I have installed/preinstalled. I have to really hunt just to find Open With. I've annotated the screenshot with item priority. Such clutter, the list is so long it almost fills my
    24" screen top to bottom and that's just for a picture.

    Is there a safe way I can tweak the items and positioning of items without risking breaking it with regedit? Rather not mess with things I don't understand. Looking for a visual context menu editor but wary of viruses. Suggestions?

    Also I'd like to add an "Edit with Photoshop" option for images here below/above the Edit option.
