How to restore context menu to default or how it was before you edit?

Suppose I used: "Edit" Context Menu - Change Default Program in Windows

To man an edit or two.


Isn't there a backup or restore function somewhere?

Hey Matt,

You should be able to just delete what you added to remove it, and restore the context menu back to how it was before you added it.

Another option is to do a system restore using a restore point dated before you changed the context menu to undo it.
