An application I use regularly is command-line based, and I would like to add the most used commands in the Windows Explorer's context menu that pops up when right-clicking on a file or folder.

enter image description here

From what I read, a lot of programs in that menu are COM applications.

Is there an easier way to add commands to the menu, as an alternative to opening a DOS box and typing commands? Ideally, it should work for XP, Vista, and 7.

Thanks for the link. – OverTheRainbow Oct 12 '11 at 15:23
Fast Explorer does work to add a group + items, but I'd like to send this to someone and there's no trace of those in the Registry. Does someone know how Fast Explorer saves data? – OverTheRainbow Oct 14 '11 at 16:41
Registry, i can try to recall path – Lazy Badger Oct 14 '11 at 16:51
I searched through the Registry for a couple of items I created, but nothing turned up :-/ – OverTheRainbow Oct 14 '11 at 18:25
I found added keys under HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers (XP, if it matter) – Lazy Badger Oct 14 '11 at 18:41
