This question already has an answer here:

When I click right mouse button in Windows Explorer I get an option to create a new Folder, Shortcut, Text Document, Microsoft Word Document etc.. I would like to add Intellij IDEA file-based project into this menu, so I can right click and rapidly create new projects in many folders. IDEA's project consist of 3 files and 1 empty folder :


I have already copied these into C:\Windows\ShellNew. I've created add-ipr.reg with

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00


What's next?

  • @ramhound it is not a duplicate because the answers is not applicable to my question. I am asking about adding FILE TREE as an item, not a single file. – ieXcept Jul 12 '17 at 15:33
  • "I am asking about adding FILE TREE as an item," - What? You don't indicate that in your question. So how was I suppose to know? What makes you think you can even do this? – Ramhound Jul 12 '17 at 16:29
  • The "New" entries in the Context Menu are limited in their capability. They basically hand off a very simple argument (the file type) to a Windows process. This limits what you can create with them. You could write a script that creates or copies these folders to the current location and place it in the Context Menu, but not in the Context Menu > New section. – music2myear Jul 14 '17 at 21:11
