Erm... I get that when right-clicking in the main text area of Notepad. What, exactly, do you mean?

I guess SIW2 wants to know what system element generates the context menu .... is it ?

If so, I also dont know . I have searched in notepad.exe, notepad.exe.mui and notepad.lnk , it is not in any of those locations

Yes, exactly Arc.

I want to change it.

I think it is being called from a .dll - trouble is - I can't remember where.

There are a lot of .dll files . It will be very difficult to search

Notepad uses the system edit control. You will get the same menu when you click in most edit boxes (like for example the address bar in Explorer). It probably lives in some system DLL, my guess would be comctl32.dll.mui
