In the Windows registry, where can I find the Context Menu items for Explorer right mouse button drag & drop?

In Windows Explorer when you right-click and hold on a folder then move the cursor to desktop you get a "Move here", "Copy here", etc menu. I would like to add items or see what items are there.
