    How can I edit a shellex label on context menu?


    I'd like to change the text of a context menu:

    How can I edit a shellex label on context menu? [​IMG]

    I know also the exact ShellEx that added it including its CLSID... Is there a way to change those labels or are them hard-coded somewhere in the ShellEx dll itself?
    Already tried a bunch of apps to edit shell extensions but they are only able to add/remove/disable entries.

    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:


    How can I edit a shellex label on context menu? 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:


    How can I edit a shellex label on context menu? 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 How can I edit a shellex label on context menu? :)

    Upon checking on the screenshot you provided, the option available are possibly related to any third-party apps you installed. For us to provide you the accurate information regarding your concern, we would like to see what is listed in

    • Once it shows on the options, click on it and navigate to the following key:
      HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers.

    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 How can I edit a shellex label on context menu? :(
