  1. Windows 11 Explorer crashing on Context menu


    After updating from Windows 10 all worked perfect to Windows 11 the Explorer looks different in case of reduced menus. But on advanced menu, I can see old and default context entries like on 7Zip again. Unfortunately the Explorer crashes as soon as I click right on a zip file. Problem is, I can restart and repeat and there is no error message or help in any way to find the source of problem. Now its a huge blackbox to handle, just can watch Explorer crashing again.Windows event log has an suspecious entry:Name der fehlerhaften Anwendung: explorer.exe, Version: 1

    File Explorer Context Menu

    Changes to the File Explorer context menu in Windows 11 have made it more inconvenient for me to use compared with Windows 10. I use "New Folder" frequently and this is now 2-clicks away, in favour of a list of commands I never use. Is there a way to change way this context menu displays?

  3. File Explorer Context Menu

    Hi Mark, my name is Neil and I'm a Windows 11 user like you.

    I too wasn't thrilled by the new context menu options in Windows 11. However, since using it, my New > option appears on the first context menu, where you simply hover and then select New Folder just like Windows 10.

    Now I can't be sure if this changed by itself (adapted because I have used the New option a few times) or if this came from an update? So you might want to try using the New option a few times and see if it moves to the first context menu.

    However, to answer your question, yes! There is a way to restore a full context menu back to Windows 11.

    It involves editing the registry but is a fairly simple thing to do and it is also easy to remove too by deleting the key you create if you ever needed to.

    There are many websites with the steps that show you what to do, but I think this one is the best as a step-by-step guide: https://www.techrepublic.com/article/how-to-res...

    After following the instructions and rebooting, you will have a full context menu when you right click.

    I hope this helps!

    Kindest regards,

    Neil
