Edit right-click context menus in Windows 7

I want to customize the right-click menu in Windows for specific file types, such as when I right click on image files (PNGs, GIFs, BMPs....) then there would be an option to open the files in a specified program with additional parameters. Can anybody tell me how do it please?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


I'm not sure if you could exactly what you want, but you can do some customization by changing the registry settings. See the Customizing a Shortcut Menu Using Static Verbs section in this MSDN article: Creating Shortcut Menu Handlers

If that doesn't allow you to do what you want, you might need to create your own context menu handler, but that would involve programming and if you'd need any information about that I'd suggest looking on Stackoverflow.com.

  • That's exactly what I want. Thanks so much for your help! – Teiv Dec 22 '11 at 8:49
