Windows 7: Context Menu Cleanup for Dummies

Context Menu Cleanup for Dummies

I have surfed thru a few topics regarding removing/adding items to the context menu. These are mostly outside of my quite limited comfort zone. My main source of irritation are the folder and file context menus. For me something simple like :

1. select file/folder.
2. right-clik to display context menu.
3. scroll to desired item.
4. right-clik to delete. DONE.

... and once my context menu is 'clean' perhaps :

1. select file/folder.
2. right-clik to display context menu.
3. right clik on empty/dead area to
4. add desired action item/s. DONE.

... would be heaven on earth.

If not maybe there is a dummie-friendly gui-driven utility that can help me out?

thank you

you are correct. sadly, not much in the way of something 'For Dummies'. I did try several of those. Ended up using something not listed but seemed to be most friendly to me called 'Fast Explorer 2008'. - thnx.

Thanks for the recommendation of Fast Explorer 2008 MourningStar! CNET seemed to like it and the users' reviews seem positive. It's so great that we can ALL learn from each other. And I'm happy to have something new to add to my arsenal of menu customizing apps!
