Windows 7: Customizing Context Menus

Customizing Context Menus

Hi, I'm having a problem with my context menu; as I add more programs, more and more items are added to the menu... Thing is, I tend to use these various menus but I cant stand seeing it so long and tedious.

I was wondering if there was a program like MMM+ (Context menu program Mmm+. Windows menu program, clean-up menu-items with MMM Plus.) wherein you can organize various context menus into sub-menus to make the context menu look "cleaner" and simpler? The MMM+ doesnt work on Windows 7 x64 that's why I'm looking for an alternative... I tried running it in compatibility mode as well, with no results :/

I tried ShellMenuView and ShellExView and it doesnt provide the option I was looking for..

I hope you guys can help me on this its kinda annoying now...

hi there

so you want to clean the context menu ? take away entries, consolidate them into groups so the context is organized? A-Z? shellexview gives you options i use it to tweak what i have shown and to stop explorer crashes. i have been looking for a program to to organize the list but have not found one. i should think you could alter the listings in the registry but have not attempted it yet.

Thanks for that reply, yeah I thought about just extending them so keep them hidden but I was opting for a sub-menu style you know where I can group say Kaspersky and SuperAntiSpyware in a sub-menu called "Virus Scanners"... I just thought it was possible since MMM+ has that nifty functionality....

Probably totally off course here, but will MMM+ work in compatibility mode?

Yup I know, I just use SuperAntiSpyware as a redundancy tool and a cookie remover, I hardly ever use it to scan anything except for maintenance on my computers...
