    "Text File" missing from explorer right click context


    When I right click somewhere in explorer or desktop, New Text File is missing. I searched for this problem and it seems like the registry responsible for this is present, so I don't know what is left to do.

  2. mouse right click will not open my file explorer in taskbar

    Hello Carl,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    We regret the inconvenience caused to you. We will assist you to resolve this issue.

    • What happens when you left clicking?
    • When you say right click, do you actually mean left click?
    • Which all troubleshooting steps have you already tried to resolve this issue?

    Left clicking with mouse will open File explorer or any other programs. Whereas right click will give you context menu.

    I suggest you to right-click on the File Explorer
    on the task bar and select Unpin from Taskbar. Now in the search bar type
    File Explorer and right click on it and select Pin it to Taskbar
    and check if it helps.

    Let us know the status of the issue. We will be glad to assist you further.

    Thank you.

  3. Explorer.exe right click context menu missing links

    Now I need the other codes.

    Where can I find them all?

    I need the codes for copy, paste, rename, and delete.

    I know there are more but those are the ones I found.

    Explorer.exe right click context menu missing links

    Hi James,

    To troubleshoot your concern, we suggest that you recreate the missing links in the File Explorer. You may refer to the steps provided below:

    • Type regedit in Run box.
    • Hit Enter to open the Registry Editor.
    • Verify the registry key listed below:
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\New\

    (Default)

    Has the value listed as follows:

    {D969A300-E7FF-11d0-A93B-00A0C90F2719}

    4. Recreate it to match this value If it does not exists or if it shows a different value

    5. Restart the File Explorer.

    Registry Disclaimer:

    Important: This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs. For more information about
