    I can't add .xlsx in context menu in New group


    I have Office 2016. Key is Excel.Sheet.12, inside ShellNew, inside string value named FileName, value is excel12,xlsx. But i don't see excel in context menu > new. Word in ShellNew has NullFile. i tried that for .xlsx too but no effect. On https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/all/how-do-i-add-excel-to-the-new-context-menu-in-my/8a388f7f-76d7-4807-82ff-d69cb929d2e7 is a way to add Excel file in context menu but outside New group that's why i don't want to use this way. Excel is already default program to open .xlsx file type.

    :)

  2. Problem with New Context Menu

    The option to add a new Rich Text File seems to have disappeared from my Context Menu and I'm not sure why.

    I'm not computer savvy, but after a bit of Googling I read how you can add and delete options from the New Context Menu though the Registry Editor. When I went to check it the .rtf folder under HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT still has it's ShellNew folder so I'm not
    sure what the issue is or if perhaps there's something wrong with it. I also found a tool to easily enable/disable file types on the New Context Menu, and .rtf is listed along with everything else and checked off as "enabled" but for some reason is not showing
    up, even after I tried disabling and enabling it a couple of times. This is extremely frustrating as that's the file type I use the most.

    Any suggestions as to what the problem is or how to fix it?

  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 I can't add .xlsx in context menu in New group :(

    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:


    I can't add .xlsx in context menu in New group 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:


    I can't add .xlsx in context menu in New group 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 I can't add .xlsx in context menu in New group :)
