Windows 7: Recycle bin (again) - need default context menu

Recycle bin (again) - need default context menu

After some unconsious playing around - I managed to loose most of the context menu for my Recycle bin. "empty recycle" is gone, "delete" is gone etc...

I tried to create a new user account and copy the settings from there - but - same things ...

So - please - if anyone could dump their registry keys involved in Recycle Bin's context menu...

Hello Lindstrom, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You can do a system restore using a restore point dated before the context menu items were removed to hopefully restore them.

Hope this helps,

System restore works... but...

Yea - I know system restore would work - but... the 3 days after things went wrong - a lot of updates and installs have also been done on my system...

but- I guess - the time it takes for me to redo those installs is much less than the time I will use to search for how-to get back the reg. settings without system restore...

Thanx guys....
