Hi taratata2014, welcome to 7F! :)
My apologies that no one has answered your query sooner.

If I understand you correctly, you need to see more than 17 items in your context menu(s).
why i can have more 17 link command in a ContextMenu?
I believe you meant to say how can I instead of why. La syntaxe est toujours le fléau de translation. Eh?

The reason you can not is because Microsoft (MS) wanted to use a solution that would avoid accidental commands if more than 15 files were available at one time.

This link: Context menus are shortened when more than 15 files are selected will explain and offer a possible fix. If the registry key - MultipleInvokePromptMinimum - does not exist at - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer - you will have to create it.
This link offers a more visual way and a batch file to do that: [FIX] Open, Edit and Print Context Menu Items Missing in Windows 7 When 15+ Files Selected - AskVG

It should be noted that if you want more than the 18 Sub-Commands and 1 Sub Menu with 5 Sub-Commands for a total of (18+1+5 = (24)) you would need to set the MultipleInvokePromptMinimum value to at least 24 instead of the 16 mentioned in the Context menus are shortened when more than 15 files are selected article.

Note   Note
Note: a value of 16 is interpreted as "unlimited" for showing the options from the context menu, however it does not allow the actual opening of the documents selected if selecting more than 16.

To allow the opening of more than 16 documents, set this key to a decimal value greater than the amount of documents you wish to open. Microsoft recommends only increasing this value to a reasonable number in a controlled environment and only where users really need this value increased.
So 24 would have to be 25.

From the work you show in the code box you seem to be comfortable with working with the registry still, some caution is advised, see: Registry - Backup and Restore, and if you do a lot of work with the registry this link may be helpful: New Registry File - Add to Context Menu. 25 would have to be 26.

In case there was a difference, I took the liberty to translate the HKCU Key from English to the French I saw in your code box, but the difference is minimal.
Nom: MultipleInvokePromptMinimum 
Type: DWORD 
Par défaut: 15 (décimal)
Once you make the change, a restart of your machine is advised.
