    Missing PowerShell on r-click start button


    I have seen the fix for this somewhere on 10F, but I can't find it. Right click on start button shows context menu, but on mine the PowerShell commands are missing. If I uncheck the option in taskbar properties/navigation, I get the 2 cmd prompt options, but if check the option to show Powershell, Cmd options are gone and no Powershell options.

    I know I've seen the fix, just can't find it. Jog anybody's memory?

    Thanks......

    :)

    Start button r/click menu location

    I don't think these information are stored in a folder, I suppose they are in registry keys (some information can be found on the 3rd link I provided):

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AllFileSystemObjects\ShellEx\ContextMenuHandlers

    (Folders right click menu)

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell

    (Desktop right click menu)

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers

    Detailed how-to to edit those keys can be found here:

    If you want to proceed this way, it's strongly advicable a preliminary registry backup

    Start button r/click menu location

    Hi Ugo

    Thanks for advice, was aware of links you provided, but what I am looking for is the folder within Windows that shows the items listed in the r/click menu, from there you can add / delete items, without using 3rd party apps, used it before to add "Control
    Panel' to list, as I said I cannot remember the location!!!!!

    I'll be... you're right!?

    Something is changed though because Power Shell shortcuts which used to be in the default WinX folder now reside in the 'Start Menu' folder!?

    Verified with handy-dandy Classic Shell... Ok, though. With the KB from yesterday, it can be pinned to start menu! And works! Second one is the admin version....

    Missing PowerShell on r-click start button

    I jumped into the middle of your explanation on restoring the right-click on Start Key.

    I have found Winx, Group3 which contains two Command Prompts and two Windows PowerShall.

    Now what?

    Thank for any help...
