New VBScript File - Add to Context Menu-vbs-file.jpg

Here's How:
1. To Add "VBScript Script File" to "New" Context Menu
A) Click/tap on the Download button below to download the file below, and go to step 3 below.
Add_New_VBS_to_Context_Menu.reg
download
2. To Remove "VBScript Script File" from "New" Context Menu
NOTE: This is the default setting.
A) Click/tap on the Download button below to download the file below, and go to step 3 below.
Remove_New_VBS_from_Context_Menu.reg
download
3. Save the .reg file to the desktop.

4. Double click/tap on the downloaded .reg file to merge it.

5. When prompted, click/tap on Run, Yes (UAC-Windows 7/8) or Continue (UAC-Vista), Yes, and OK to approve merging the .reg file.

6. Sometimes it may take a moment before this context menu item to actually be added or removed. If not, then restart the computer to apply.

7. You can now delete the downloaded .reg file if you like.

That's it,
Shawn

Why is the "ItemName" required ? (which decipher for notepad.exe)

I use the empty "NullFile" key for all other filetype and I've never included an "ItemName" key .. Am I missing anything ? (is there any actual purpose of adding this key?)

Thanks

Hello mrk7frm,

"ItemName" is used to identify and confirm the default program that is used to open the .vbs file.

If you look in the "ShellNew" key under other file extensions under HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT, you'll see it user in them as well.
