You can try including quotes around the %1 to ensure that paths with spaces are treated as a single string. So via Regedit change the command to: C:\Windows\System32\Tweaks\ContextCopy.exe path "%1" Which will export as: [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\Copy path] [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\Copy path\command] @="C:\Windows\System32\Tweaks\ContextCopy.exe path ...

You need (at least) add quotes around the %1 - "%1" - otherwise your filepath and name will arrive as separate parameters wherever they have a blank.
