I'm looking for a way to edit the right-click context menus in Windows 7. I would prefer to use a graphical editor, as diving into the Windows registry is rather messy, and inconvenient.

If such software doesn't exist, please tell me - then I can start my long visit to the registry.

Tried the first two programs, and the (sort of) accomplished what I needed, thanks. – Pepijn Nov 13 '10 at 14:07
You're welcome. – Mehper C. Palavuzlar Nov 13 '10 at 14:48
WARNING: I am surprised anyone would recommend "right click enhancer," as mehper did above. It has the babylon browser hijacker hidden in the code! Fortunately my FF 'browser hijack" detection addon stopped it! – user146818 Jul 18 '12 at 13:21
Right Click Enhancer installer version contains babylon browser toolbar but portable version is free of ads. There is also a paid version which didn't contain ads in installer and portable version. – Ravi Patel Apr 9 '13 at 4:45

Personally I don't have any experience of such software, but I know there are few. I always use registry directly and prefer to do these kinds of things myself. You could try this one: Context Menu Editor for Windows 7 & Vista

And here's good guide to do this from registry (if you end up doing it):

NOTE: Remember to take backup from registry before editing the values.

This program is only for the context menu on windows folder background when pressing shift and right clicking. – modiX Nov 23 '14 at 21:08
