    Information A .ps1 script file is a text file that contains one or more Windows PowerShell commands or expressions. A .ps1 file will open with Notepad by default. To run a .ps1 file with PowerShell, you would right click or press and hold on the .ps1 file and click tap on "Run with PowerShell".

    The New context menu allows users to quickly create new files, folders, and shortcuts. You can right click or press and hold on your desktop or in any folder window, and click/tap on New to open the New context menu.

    By default, Windows PowerShell Script is not in the New click context menu. Adding "Windows PowerShell Script" to the New context menu will make it easy for users to be able to quickly create a new .ps1 file on demand ready to be edited afterwards.

    This tutorial will show you how to add or remove Windows PowerShell Script to the New context menu for all users in Windows 10.

    You must be signed in as an administrator to be able to add or remove "Windows PowerShell Script" from the New context menu.

    Note The Windows PowerShell execution policy determines whether you can run scripts and load Windows PowerShell profiles and configuration files. The default execution policy, Restricted, prevents all scripts from running, and prevents loading profiles. To change the execution policy to allow profiles to load and be used, see:

  2. Locked Powershell startup command in context menu

    Hi

    I had thought it had resolved the problem of the 2 PowerShell scripts as I was able disable them in the context menu of startup. Unfortunately I'm not able to delete them, either in CCleaner or in the registry even though I set permissions to full control.
    That said CCleaner shows them as disabled.

    Have I missed something?

    Hi

    I had missed the section on applying full control to the command folder beneath the PowerShell one in regedit. Since I changed the permissions on the command folder as well I have now deleted the two scripts from the startup program list in the context menu.

    Many thanks for your help.

  5. 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?
