Windows 7: Edit Shortcut for Slideshows Missing on Context Menu

Edit Shortcut for Slideshows Missing on Context Menu

I have been using PowerPoint since Office XP. It didnít have and still doesnít have an Edit entry on the context menu for .pps or ppsx files. This is very annoying when we want to edit one of those files as I often do. I made the necessary change in the registry, and the Edit shortcut showed up on the context menu for .pps files for XP and 2003, and then also for the ppsx files for and 2007. I exported and saved the modified registry settings to be able to just import them at any time I had to reinstall Office. It was simple, for each new Office version I only had to modify the path for PowerPoint and it worked.

Now, I have tried to do the same for 2010. It does have an Edit key under Shell, but the Edit shortcut doesnít appear on the context menu. I donít understand why it doesnít work now. Am I making any mistake or is there another reason? Can someone, please, enlighten me on finding a way to do it?
