Windows 7: How do you edit text in Context Menus?

How do you edit text in Context Menus?

I have no clue if this is the correct forum to post this in. I will like to explain how I have gotten to this point. For some reason, there was some weird things happening to my laptop. When I ctrl+alt+del, there was no options other than lock the computer and log off. The task manager completely disappeared. I had no clue why that happened. Secondly, my context menus wouldn't work on the start menu, so deleting a folder or a program out of my start menu was impossible unless I went through the countless folders in my C drive to do it that way. The problem was, the option to enable or disable context menus was missing from my properties, which caused the issue to begin with.

I went on countless websites, trying to remedy the problem. I finally came across the tutorials on this site and fixed both issues quickly! The issue I am having now is a fix I tried before I knew what I was doing and I have no clue how to change it back. When I open the context menu in explorer, instead of the first option being 'Open', there is only a 1. It was when I tried to go into Regedit and fix the issue there. I am wondering is there is any way to change it back to 'Open' and how would I go about doing this?

I am going to attach a picture so you guys will understand what I am talking about.

Cascading Context Menus
Windows 7 context or shortcut menu has always expanded cascaded items on mouse hover in the past. This has stopped working for me and it now takes an extra click. I'm guessing that there is a registry key gone bad because I can't find any settings for it elsewhere. It is not a big deal but I...
