Windows 7: Right-Click Extender a Right-Click Menu addon app

Right-Click Extender a Right-Click Menu addon app

I created this app several months ago. For those that may not have come across it. It includes over 60 options to add to the File/Folder, Desktop, My Computer and Drives Right-Click menu as well as Icons and Shift-Click options. Can also backup the registry settings to revert back to your original menu before using RCE.


Designed for Windows 7. Some options do work on earlier versions but due to limitations in available options most do not work on versions earlier than Windows 7.


*If you get an error upon running RCE for the first time, just click continue to ignore it. This is due to some machines not properly adding the encrypt/decrypt address in registry and the application failing to locate it. This is being fixed in the next version as well as adding options to remove existing menu options.

Looks useful. I do have a question, will RCE pickup on the context menu additions that one has already manually added? In other words if I have one on RCE's list and it's enabled will RCE show that it's enabled/checked? I assume it reads the registry prior to loading the GUI and therefore it would know but I don't know.

One more question unrelated, would you know or have a way of finding out what the click event/command is for the little calendar that pops up when one clicks the date/time in the system tray? I would like to add this to a particular context menu but for the life of me can not find any info on it. Even with a classical HIPS installed and monitoring pretty much everything nets me nothing.

The trouble with picking up other applications right-click menu addon options is every application uses it's own naming convention. I have tried to name them all as best I could to match other applications but I hate to say I can't figure them all out. And yes, it reads from registry as soon as it runs, The one option I did add is upon first run it will backup your registry settings, so afterwards if you see a menu conflict with dual entries, you can remove it and always go back to your original settings by restoring the backup if you choose not to use RCE anymore.

I'll look into the calendar and let you know. Haven't thought of that one, but would be a good option to add to next version

If I can't find a way maybe if I get a chance I could write an application that mimics the calendar dialog

I can easily understand the naming part,lol. Way back yonder when I made mine up, I had to add letters to the beginning of some Key names which allowed me to locate them up or down in the context menu. Letters at the start of the alphabet moved them up and letters at the end moved them down. Having said that, I see your point about the naming convention. Thanks for the info my friend

I'll just say I d'loaded this for its ability to hide drives in the Send To context entries. All other context mods which will be from here, there, everywhere, it's picked up on.
