Windows 7: Annoying Ghost In Build 6956

Windows 7 RC 7100 32bit/64bit
 
 

Windows 7 handles context menus differently. In previous versions, the icon of the application , if it used one in the context menu, was shown next to the text of the command. Now it's split on the left, and it's shown in a different column. (avast handles it right)
It's now obvious that winrar can't handle it, cause it didn't display any icon at all. Neither on the left column nor on the right column, next to the text.
So it's a context handling issue that either winrar and other apps will have to fix, or microsoft will have to predict an autofit/autofix for that. Send Feedback perhaps?

7z does work ok because it displays its context menus on another, expandable menu, not messing with the top menu.

Regards

I've uninstalled everything for now but I never had Winrar installed, only 7-Zip. Similar issues?

Removing it solves it...

Thank you, napilopez. Cheers

all right so it is the way a program handles a context menu...
interesting...
i mean i can also confirm since i know why...
all the apps installed dont install context menus which in turn is the reason why i dont see it...

we are agreeing that winrar is culprit...
anyone have any other apps that install context sensitive menu???
i will install some later and see what happens...
well at least 7-zip works....

7zip also creates context menus so it can be a suspect...
and that was my fallback...lol

Vista and now 7 in 32 and 64 bit.
 
 

With winzip or winrar open, I still cannot create the ghost. Maybe the fault is with the choice of desktops (I am not running Aero)

Use Izarc instead of WinRar or 7zip. It handles many different extensions and its freeware.
