I want to know how to modify the registry so that I can group menu-items in the dropdown menu (right-clicking from file in the explorer) and put those menu-items in submenus.
The picture illustrates the programs associated with a file on my system. The first set of menu-items are for a program called SAS (7 items), followed by 7-zip (only 1 item), "CRC SHA"(1 item), and then ending file association menu-items with 8 menu-items for Vim. Notice the submenu arrows for 7-zip, "CRC SHA" on the right. By clicking into these arrows, more menu-items appear providing more associated actions for the individual programs. My goal is to organize the menu-items dealing with, SAS and Vim by grouping the items into submenus similar to 7-zip and "CRC SHA". (SAS is the program that is associated with the particular ".sas" file and Vim is associated with any file ".*".)
I mean... look at this dropdown... it's getting out of control, am I right?
I spent some time googling this. But I feel my failure is that I don't know what jargon to use to get a good hit. Any help will be appreciated.
Now that I understand more of the jargon, the word "context", and "Cascading Menus" are relevant terms to this subject.
Also, I now see this is a duplicate question; my apologies.
