    Question about which registry keys apply to which area of context menu


    I'm trying to bookmark some shortcuts, and im about done - but im stuck on one location.

    HKCR

    Have * for files

    Have Directory

    Have Drive

    Have Folder (would think thats synonymous with directory?)

    Have LibraryFolder (apparently thats libraries but requires elevation anyways and treated separate from folder or directory)

    The one im stuck on its meaning/application relative to the others is AllFilesystemObjects. What does this apply to? Trying to label these in such a way that its clear to me for the long term Question about which registry keys apply to which area of context menu :p

    :)

    How to tidy File Explorer's right click context menu

    We appreciate the screenshot. The options that show up on the first screenshot you send is listed in the
    Context Menu Handler. We don't advise that you make any changes to that as it may cause issues on your computer. If you still want to delete/remove those, we suggest that you get in touch with someone who is knowledgeable with navigating the
    Context Menu Handler or IT professional/specialist we should say.

    Important: Serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry
    if a problem occurs. For more information about how to back up and restore the registry, refer to the following Microsoft Knowledge Base article.

    Let us know if you have any questions and/or clarifications.

  4. Question about which registry keys apply to which area of context menu

    "Open With" menu - registry entries mysterious

    I have no interest in editing what that page is talking about (the top-level context menu items). The term "Open With" is not even mentioned, and registry entries it talks about are in a completely different area of the registry.

    I already know where in the registry the Open With lists are for all the file extensions. My problem is that they don't match what the menu is showing, and I want to know why.
