Windows 7: Editing and Adding Custom Context Menu Options

Editing and Adding Custom Context Menu Options

I've been trying to find if there's a way in Explorer to select multiple folders, and open them in a single window that shows all contents of those folders combined. Any knowledge of such a thing?

I've found a few posts about it but nothing seems to be relevant to what's available to me in either the regedit or anything else.

I've tried a few of the freeware apps that claim they edit the context menus to no avail as well.

There seems to be 2 problems here.

To the first I havent seen anything. Why would you want to?

To the second there are tons of them. Have you tried googling it?

1. I'm I want to just be able to quickly open different file types in different programs. (Exp: If I have a .png image and I want to just view it -or- open it in paint for a quick change -or- open it in Photoshop to convert or indepth edit) That sort of thing

2. I have googled it. I found a few apps. But none of them seem to do what they say they do.
