In RegEdit, where can I find the Context Menu for right mouse button drag & drop? So like when you right-click and hold on a folder then move the cursor to desktop to get "Move here", "Copy here" etc?

Thank you.

Question very unclear: Simple drag with the left-mouse will move-copy folders anywhere, including the desktop. Right-click is only used for drag/move in the Start menu. – harrymc Jul 25 '12 at 5:38
    
@Francisc you are free to edit your question to make it more clear and have it reopened – Ivo Flipse Jul 25 '12 at 7:53
    
Haha. What is it that is unclear please? – Francisc Jul 25 '12 at 11:46
    
You don't know what you didn't understand? Well, in that case I think you should open it. – Francisc Jul 27 '12 at 18:39
    
I know this is an old question, but I needed the answer now and came across it. I don't understand how is this question unclear? When you drag and drop icons with the right mouse button, you get a context menu and the question clearly refers to editing the items in that context menu, just like you can edit the items in the context menu for right clicking. The only amiguity I see comes from harrymc's comment who probably doesn't know about this Windows feature. – Bikonja Feb 2 at 15:12

These are only the registered extensions for drag-drop. – harrymc Jul 25 '12 at 5:35
    
Thanks, just what I was looking for. I can't award the 50+ bounty probably because it was closed by Ivo Flipse who didn't understand the question. :| – Francisc Jul 25 '12 at 11:50
