Windows 7: change order in right click drop down box...?

01 Apr 2012   #1

change order in right click drop down box...?

in graphic programs, explorer, etc when I right click I get a drop down box showing


well right above that is "delete" and I'm frequently getting the two mixed when clicking, tho I don't usually actually delete cause I catch that first.

Is there a way to seperate those and reorder the drop down list so they are farther apart. It gets to be a nuisance sometimes when I am rename picture files.

Not an answer to your question but a still a solution of sorts.

Press F2 to bring up the rename dialog. No confusion that way
