  1. How to remove the "Restore Previous Versions" option from Context-Menus of files?


    I use W11 but I have the old W10 Context-Menu because I prefer it that way I found a tutorial on how to change it using the Registry Editor. I'm in the habit of moving files by using [Shift+F10] on them to open the Context-Menu and then pressing the "V" key a couple of times and then Enter to arrive at the dialogue-box that moves a file. However, I often slip on my keyboard and end-up selecting the Restore Previous Versions option of that Context-Menu instead. This worries me as I do not want anything to do with any sort of file-versioning or file-restoring systems that the OS offers—I manag

    Previous versions of files in restore point


    Searched, didn't see this one.

    One of the most useful features of Win 7 was when you could pull a previous version of a file out of the restore point. But now when I go to configure a system restore it isn't listed as an option as it was in 7. However, in a context menu on any file it still lists it as an option. Is this just gone or a huge bug?

  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 How to remove the "Restore Previous Versions" option from Context-Menus of files? :(

  4. How to remove the "Restore Previous Versions" option from Context-Menus of files?

    File Explorer Context Menu

    Hi Mark, my name is Neil and I'm a Windows 11 user like you.

    I too wasn't thrilled by the new context menu options in Windows 11. However, since using it, my New > option appears on the first context menu, where you simply hover and then select New Folder just like Windows 10.

    Now I can't be sure if this changed by itself (adapted because I have used the New option a few times) or if this came from an update? So you might want to try using the New option a few times and see if it moves to the first context menu.

    However, to answer your question, yes! There is a way to restore a full context menu back to Windows 11.

    It involves editing the registry but is a fairly simple thing to do and it is also easy to remove too by deleting the key you create if you ever needed to.

    There are many websites with the steps that show you what to do, but I think this one is the best as a step-by-step guide: https://www.techrepublic.com/article/how-to-res...

    After following the instructions and rebooting, you will have a full context menu when you right click.

    I hope this helps!

    Kindest regards,

    Neil
