    Word Context Menu Item Missing


    Hello I am having a problem related to the above topic. My menu entry for the Word Document is missing from the context menu. The registry key is there, but the menu entry is not. I am using the Office 365 x64 version.

    I already wrote here but did not arrive at a solution.
    What I have already tried:
    1. Win+R -> WinWord /r
    2. Registry:

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Word.Document.12\shell\New]
    @="@C:\\Program Files\\Microsoft Office\\Root\\VFS\\ProgramFilesCommonX64\\Microsoft Shared\\Office16\\oregres.dll,-2"

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Word.Document.12\shell\New\command]
    @="\"C:\\Program Files\\Microsoft Office\\Root\\Office16\\WINWORD.EXE\" /n /f \"%1\""

    3.

    4. Reinstall Office 365
    5. Putting a "WORD12.docx" file in "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\root\vfs\Windows\SHELLNEW" and modifying the registry to:

    Modify Title of Context Menu Item

    This is curiously difficult. No one utility seems to offer a complete list of context menu entries as far as I know.

    For example, using Shellmenuview, you can access the relevant entry in Regedit. For some it appears to offer the ability to change that text:

    That's an installed program.

    For others, it doesn't.

    (That's a default Windows program....).

    Note too the text appears in multiple places where the program is associated with multiple extensions.

    The venerable ContextMenuEdit allows you to edit the text, but again, this is non-trivial- consider here the extension list supported by vlc player, undifferentiated in the left column:

    To be consistent, each one would have to be edited- then if you changed player, all that would be lost.

    Basically this, I suggest, is not worth pursuing except in very specific cases should there be a real need.

    Considering the impact of upgrading, changes to installed program context menu entries should not be affected. Changes to Windows default entries- if that's even feasible, which I doubt, as I believe the text isn't in the registry, would be restored to default.

  3. Add or Remove Start Context menu items

    Nyima,

    I was not asking about adding and removing regular app items to the start menu, but rather adding or removing items from the Context Menu (Win+X). Specifically, I would like to add the Devices and Printers item to the list.

    Thank you for the response.

    Context menu of Recent item of pinned taskbar missing

    So this happened to me quite recently, the context menu of recent items from pinned taskbar items is blank now. I did not install anything new recently too, I have tried disabling context menu that are not from Windows using CCleaner's tool and also shexview but still can't get it to work. I really want to pin items and remove recent items. Can someone advise me on what to do next?
