Hi xbxhkz,

Thanks, I added some I didn't have, as I have some of them already. Some don't seem to show up on the context menu though. such as Recycle bin and Search..

I just added them all to my context menu and search is all the way at the bottom but your right about the recycle bin. Ill have to check my script and fix it, I must have made a mistake somewhere. I'm glad you like them though!

Well, I don't need all of them but no, the recycle bin and search don't show up, at least for me. I didn't try all of them so I don't know if any others don't show up either.

Thanks I'm glad you all liked them. I'm working on some things with the leak of build 7075 and Im having issues now with running a season dvd in wmp without it freezing up after an episode or two. It might be because Im running it through my HDMI output but I doubt it. oh well.
