  1. Microsoft Context Menu "New" option is acting slow


    So, I had this issue for a while now, and I was wondering if something was corrupted in the registry files.

    Also, this is not about the WHOLE Context Menu being slow, it's this one option named "New" that is taking a lot of time to load, and I was wondering if there is a fix for this.

    :)

  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. change the right click "new" context menu options

    How may I edit the right click context menu to add apps or options that are relevant. Right click on the desktop and a menu pops up offering to "view > ", or " sort by >" and so forth. Under right click "new > " after "folder" and "shortcut" are a list
    of totally useless (to me) choices for a new Microsoft word document or data base document or a number of other Microsoft apps that I do not have or use. How may I edit the right click context menu to add apps or options that are relevant. Thank you
