Indeed, cool one. This way by looking into the reg file, we can learn more an how to do it manually as well.

I have it on x64 but I think it will work for both.

Mr Grim, thanks for your efforts here. Although sorry to say that I tend to avoid context menu features. Nevermind, we all work in different ways.
One observation is that System Tools is missing from your list. I always have trouble finding System Tools (esp when working on other folks PCs).
Thanks for making handy tools for us

RE:Context Menus

Thanks for that Mr Grim.

Just wondering if theres a way to put an internet browser (firefox or IE8) on the context menu in desktop.

Also is there anyway to put google on a context menu in firefox or IE8?

I have tried to add Device Manager with contextMenuTweaker but devmgmt.msc when added causes a win32 error.

Mr. Grim how did you get the device manager to work. I have gotten Task maanger and control panel no problem.

TIA

this thread is from jan-feb and probably not many ppl will be looking at it. You would probably get more response if you started a new thread with your individual problems
