Windows 7: Adding things to right click menu

Adding things to right click menu

Although I looked around Google, Yahoo and Bing, on how to add "back" on the right-click menu to go up a folder in windows explorer, and I can't seem to find a way to do it. On my theme for Windows 7, there is no address bar, no menu's at the top, and would like to have that option if possible.

Any help?

Hello Ploozi and welcome to SF!
Why not just click either the back button (that brings you to the directory you came from (like -1 in History)
or use the URL to click on the directory you want to go to? (here the HP (C: )

or simply use the Backspace button on your keyboard
The menu on to you can get by simply pressing the ALT key

Yeah, Sledge's advice is to the point. Why dont u try it?

Btw, seems that your using a 3ed party theme and so the menu bar and address bar are missing. Might be a bug in theme. However, just to answer your question, here's something that may interest you.

highly recommend you check out FileMenu Tools if you really want to customize the explorer context menu - it's free
