    Location of the "Edit" context menu entry for .reg files


    So when I edit .reg files, I prefer to edit them with VS Code instead of notepad by default. I notice that .reg files have an "edit" context menu entry that appears when you right click on them, but this context menu entry opens up notepad by default. It tried adding the following key:

    Code: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Classes\SystemFileAssociations\.reg\shell\Edit\command]@="\"C:\\Program Files\\Microsoft VS Code\\Code.exe\" \"%1\""[/quote] But this doesn't work like it does for some file extensions (such as .py, for example; this method worked perfectly for .py files) because I'm pretty sure something else in the registry has higher priority than this; the problem is, I don't know what.

    Can somebody please direct me to the registry key that is taking priority over this one for the "Edit" command that appears in the context menus of .reg files? Thanks.

    :)

    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 Location of the "Edit" context menu entry for .reg files :(

    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:


    Location of the "Edit" context menu entry for .reg files 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:


    Location of the "Edit" context menu entry for .reg files 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 Location of the "Edit" context menu entry for .reg files :)
