Windows 7: edit Drive context menu for reflect macrium program

edit Drive context menu for reflect macrium program

Soon after i install ReflectMacrium, context menu added itself is normal for almost every program. now this context menu thing is useful, (removing it is easy) but makes it looks messy and i would like to change it. Default program editor and Glary utilities cant change this because ReflectMacrium has it's context menu info within it's dll file, called RShellext.dll, means i must use resource hacker program to edit it.

all other times when i do this, resource hacker worked and info is always there to edit but this time i can't find the "create a macrium image for this partition" inside the .dll file so i looked further with notepad++ and it is indeed within RShellext.dll, just that in resource hacker it shows a bunch of hex and i do not know what or how to edit it. i could try hex, but no experience on it whatsoever.

is there anyway for me to edit this? either with resource hacking tools (with hex) or another method to do this. i could remove the context menu by deleting the dll file but i would really love to have the function, just a shorter name.

i have attached few picture to make it clear of what i need to change, thank you.

edit: i was able to adjust it with hex editor.. well thats because inside hex editor theres text showing and i simply type over it to save it. but similar problem still remains as i installed hex neo editor, as well as resource hacker both added their own context menu >.<

just like reflect macrium, in resource hacker the neo hex editor showing only hex codes in it's dll file but i tried opening the dll file with its own editor in there couldnt find the thing with context menu >.<. i'll just live with it for now..

solved with neo hex editor, replacing the long "Create a Macrium Image of this partition..." to "img this partition". the lines showing in hex codes can change if you just type over it, but difference in the length can not change or else it will fail. I changed the words, left remaining hex code to space and it worked.

Ok, I installed the new version of Reflect. One feature I like is that it can create a boot recovery menu. I did this and in fact I tested it. It made me reboot and upon reboot it gave me the choice of booting from W7 or from Reflect (Windows PE 3.0). I would like it to only give me that option...

Change Edit program in context menu?
When I double click a .BMP file it opens in the program I want. When I right click on it and select Edit it opens in mspaint. How can I change the Edit from MSPaint to something else? In Control Panel\Programs\Default Programs\Set Associations I can only change how it Opens, not how its edited.
