  1. How to add 'copy to Notepad' in right-click context menu


    Am I dreaming? I'm certain that once upon a time, (perhaps long ago) I could highlight text on a webpage and simply right-click and copy to Notepad. I've spent hours touring the registry, trying to add the feature.

    I've only been able to locate desktop and explorer context menus, nothing useful for use with a browser.

    I've searched the Tutorials section and googled without success. Could anyone point me in the right direction?

    Thanks in advance,

    Michael

  2. Right-click in some apps shows then hides context menu


    In some applications (Office 2010, Adobe Reader DC) right-clicking on the screen shows a context menu but then usually hides it again. Holding the right button down or double-clicking sometimes makes the menu stay after the button is released, and sometimes the context menu remains visible after a single right-click. In other applications (eg Notepad, Paint) the context menu does not disappear after a single right-button click

    I have tried using ShellExView to disable all 3rd party context menus, as has been suggested as a remedy for this problem, but this does not change the behaviour.

    Feature suggestion: Add right-click menu

    Suggestion: Please add a Windows 7 Jump-List and/or right-click menu to the GPU-Z icon in the Windows taskbar. Possible menus in it would be "Exit" and "About GPU-Z...".
    Maybe also "Switch to tab 1/Switch to tab 2/Switch to videocard 1/Switch to videocard 2" too.
    Examples of programs that have such menus are ICQ, Skype, AIM.

    NOTE: It seems for a right-click menu, Windows 7 is not needed - it works on WinXP and Vista too.
    But even a Windows 7 Jump-list may be good enough.
    What do you think?

    How to add 'copy to Notepad' in right-click context menu

    Open Notepad as Administrator with Context Menu?


    These are all good suggestions, but not quite what I was hoping to achieve.

    Given the number of times I need to edit a host file or some of my custom .bat files located in various locations that might have protected permissions that prevent saving updated files, I was trying to find a context-menu driven option. Since I do this with a high-degree of frequency it's annoying having to open notepad and then use the Open menu option and navigate to the files I'm trying to work on.

    The other option is to use Notepad++ with the plugin for saving as an admin to get right-click edit/save options. I just saw this script that worked in Win8 and thought that maybe I could tweak/fix it and get it working in Win10 without having to go for a third-party software solution.
