Start menu's context menu "Properties" at the bottom .. .

Hi,

i'm missing that direct access from my past windows versions,
each time i right click files/folders, i have to scroll to "properties",
if i want to open the folder of the element for example .. .

So i'd like to have "Properties" under "New shortcut" separated
by a line, at the bottom of the context menu of start-up folder's
elements.

Hello Delicate,

What you did: right clicking anywhere on a folder or desktop,

Ps: the desktop context menu & start menu's context menu
isn't listed the same way .. .

What i need:
The start menu's context menu's "Properties" at the bottom .. .

Delicate,

LOL, oops ok.

I think I know what you mean now, but could you post a screenshot of this just to make sure we are on the same page for which context menu in the Start Menu you are referring to?

You're not using the default Start Menu. That would have been helpful information to post in order for us to be able to help you.

You'll need to check the settings on whatever program you are using for this to see if you may able to. That is what is controling the context menu there. It looks like Classic Shell to me. If so, then this may help below. I don't use the program, so I don't know all of the settings for it.

yes, i didn't think classic shell could have overwritten those settings, or i prolly changed them tweaking the tool after the initial setup, thanks for your help sir brink ))
