    Enable or Disable Wide Context Menus in Windows 10

    You're most welcome Jerry. *Smile

    Yeah, I had to use a .bat file instead of a .reg file since it requires elevated rights to change the HKLM registry key and value, and explorer needs to restart to apply. A .bat file was an easy way to have it all done automatically.

    I'm glad to report that all is OK now. I had to reboot and the menus are good.

    Thanks!

    My system suddenly went to wide menus for no apparent reason. I just downloaded the batch file and applied it. Unfortunately it didn't work -- and I assume it did work last July. Here's a shot. Any ideas?

    Hello Bob, *Smile

    I just checked on build 17639, and it appears to still be working for me.

    The context menu width will always automatically adjust to the text in it. If enabled, the text should appear a bit darker to help tell the difference.

    It appears that you are using a custom skin or context menu though since that it not how the context menu looks like by default in Windows 10.
