Windows 7: Re-ordering explorer's context menu

Re-ordering explorer's context menu

I use Ultimate Windows Tweaker to add "Take Ownership" to the right click context menu and today for some reason it became the default command for folders. This means that when I double click a folder it will take ownership of it instead of opening it.

How can I re-order the right click context menu so that "Open" is the default command? I've tried various utilities that allow me to add and remove items from the menu, but none of them allow me to re-order it.

Search Companion Starts If You Double-Click a Folder or Drive

scroll down to where it shows the manual registry edit for Directory

I'm on Windows 8 and the key is the same. So W7 should be the same also.

Edit: It's a bit of a weirdy as the default value has to be the word "none" without the double quotes.

Windows 7 Explorer Context Menu Icons
Please, can anyone tell me, if there is a third party utility, that allows to add missing icons for basic commands such as cut/paste/move/copy/delete in the context menu? I couldn't find anything on internet. I don't understand why the Microsoft programmers didn't do this. Thank you very much ...
