I'm trying to add a "Tail" entry to the shell context menu for
.txt files, but whatever I do the option just does not appear.
.reg file looks like:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\txtfile\shell\Tail] [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\txtfile\shell\Tail\command] @="tail.exe -f \"%1\""
It worked fine in Windows 7. Has this feature been disabled in Windows 10 (64-bit)?
How to make it work again?
Some additional findings:
The default Open action is associated with Notepad++.
If I choose the built-in Notepad application as the default Open action, then my "Tail" menu item shows up. But as soon as I choose Notepad++ or any other app as the default Open action, my custom context menu item disappears.
