Meh...I thought this would work for opening applications in a separate process, but the context menu option only appears when shift-right-clicking drives and folders.

Hello Mqueitzs, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Sorry, but no. That's the default action of this as outlined in the green info box at the top of the tutorial.

Thanks Brink. Perhaps the green box text can be amended to indicate that the reg tweak is only for opening drives and folders in a new process.
