    Inconsistent Shell Context Menu


    I noticed something peculiar this morning. The Explorer right-click context menu is inconsistent on what it displays.

    For example, when I right-clicked on one folder, it displays the "Add to Windows Media Player List" and "Play with Windows Media Player" options.

    However, when I right-clicked on another folder, these options are absent.

    Whether these options appear in the context menu seems to be entirely arbitrary. About half of the folders have the options, and the rest do not.

    Is this a known bug?

    :)

  3. Windows 10 context menu keyboard shortcut not what it should be in File Explorer

    I recently bought Windows 10 Pro. When I right-click (or press a context menu button), and the context menu pops up, I'm getting inconsistent keyboard shortcuts. If I click in a blank space (i.e. the current folder), the shortcut to access "Properties" is
    'R'. But if I click on a folder- or file-icon, and I press 'R', Windows beeps at me as if the shortcut is invalid. When I use the keyboard to open the menu, it shows me that the shortcut for Properties is 'O'.

    This is not only inconsistent, but different to all previous versions of Windows that I've ever used. I thought that perhaps I'd installed something that'd messed with the Windows shell (but I'd only installed ESET's antivirus/firewall and the computer's
    drivers). I reset my PC, but I'm still getting the inconsistent shortcuts.

    I have a laptop that was updated to Windows 10 SL that works correctly, so it seems like it's a problem with my new PC's installation.

    Can you tell me what might have caused it? Or how to change the shortcut key for "Properties"?
