This answer is originally from here, and I am just reproducing it here for sake of brevity. Use the Windows Registry editor to delete two keys: HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell\AnyCode HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\AnyCode You may want to back up your registries before going for a delete operation, just a good practice.

Run regedit.exe, go to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell\AnyCode, take ownership of this key, change the permisions for your account and add a DWORD (32Bit) with the name HideBasedOnVelocityId and set the value to 006698a6 (hex): When you now do a rightclick the entry is gone: Delete entry or rename it to ShowBasedOnVelocityId to enable the ...

This is a known issue with PuTTY 0.65 and older on Windows 10. See PuTTY bug win10-jumplists. It seem to be a bug in Windows 10 triggered by PuTTY using the @ sign at the beginning of its command-line arguments used in jumplist shortcuts. A workaround for the Windows 10 bug has been implemented and was released with PuTTY 0.66: https://git.tartarus.org/?p=...

Try right-clicking on any ISO file, and then in the Open with... option, select Choose default program. There you'll have to choose "Windows Explorer". Check if the Mount option is back, and that's it!

By default, Explorer will use the icon set by the file type, but this can be overriden by placing an IconPath value in the ShellNew key. I figured this out by using Process Monitor to watch for Registry activity from explorer.exe. It looks like Windows's existing entries use the REG_EXPAND_SZ data type, but REG_SZ works equally well and is much easier to ...

After doing extensive research on this topic, I can confirm that there is no built-in mechanism that enables context menu either by direct shortcut or right mouse click simulation. This is due to technical limitations of the operating system, which prevents from determining coordinates of the current selection (e.g., selected element). Fortunately, in some ...

Right-click on the folder itself with Shift held down, and a new context item should appear named Open command window here. This trick also works if you do it in the empty space of a folder.

Make a shortcut of your folder on the desktop Open the run window - WIN+R Type shell:sendto into the run box. Then OK. That opens the sendto folder. Drag your shortcut from the desktop into the sendto folder. Close the folder. I just tested that on build 10061

Finally figured it out. It was directly related to the switch from 32-bit to 64-bit. Poking around the registry I found the following key was wrong: HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Applications\EXCEL.EXE\shell\open\command\(Default) Within this key was the following "old" value: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office14\EXCEL.EXE" "%1" When I changed it to ...

Affiliation notice: I am the author of the software mentioned in this answer. First up, I'll have you know that I learned C++ and Win32 just for this question. I have developed a 64-bit shell extension that gets registered as a context menu handler. When it's invoked, it rummages through the existing menu items, looking for interesting entries. If it finds ...

In case you are using the Skype App, removing the context menu item is trickier. One way is to delete DllPath under HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\PackagedCom\Package\Microsoft.SkypeApp_15.61.100.0_x86__kzf8qxf38zg5c\Class\{776DBC8D-7347-478C-8D71-791E12EF49D8} However updates to the app will probably restore this.

The "Customize Start Menu" selection menu will come up. The 8th (...
