Windows 7: Any way to rearrange entries in 'new context menu'?

Any way to rearrange entries in 'new context menu'?

Hi all

Nice tuts Brink, I've been following several of them from the 8forums tut index, really helpful all of 'em. Thx alot.

I've got 1 question tho. Is there a way to rearrange the entries in the 'new context menu' like putting 'Text Document' over 'Bitmap image'. I know there was a tool for WinXP called Tweak UI by Microsoft which allowed you to do just that and some other cool stuff. But it seems discontinued and since im coming straight from XP to 8, I wonder if this option is still available by reg tweakings.

I hope you can help. Thx in advance.

Welcome to Seven Forums SCORPION87. Are you asking for Windows 8? If for Windows 7, have a look at FileMenu Tools

FileMenu Tools

Not sure it works in Windows 8 or not.
