Can Someone Help me out?

Hey Guys . I noticed when I click on a .dll file I get a Take Ownership menu on the explorer bar ( view image ) . I was wondering if someone could tell me how that got there? I have no idea how it got there but I do have the Take Ownership on the content menu when you right click. It also gives an option to open the .dll in Restorator .

It's probably linked to the context menu item in some way, as DLLs, by default, have no program associated with them when you double click on them. I'm willing to bet that if you double-click on one now it will run the Take Ownership task...

Hello VK,

You might see if downloading and merging the DLL option in the tutorial below may be able to fix this.

I don't double click on anything . I just click on a .dll file and that Take Ownership appears on the menu .


@Brink

I am not trying to fix that I just want to know how it got there so I could add that to my other computers.

You could look through this tutorial to check the same REG locations to see if you may be able to spot the registry entry for Take ownership in one of them. This tutorial is the usual method of adding a toolbar button.

Just checked my registry to the link you proved. Nothing there says anything about Take Ownership .

If you like, export the registry keys below and upload it. I'll be happy to also take a look at it to see if there may be a entry for it in there somewhere.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\CommandStore

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FolderTypes

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FolderTypes

Well, I went through them, but like you, I didn't see anything standing out that would be for the "Take Ownership" toolbar button.

If I had to guess, it may be related to Restorator since it's in the menu of the toolbar button as well.

This is bugging me why my desktop has that option on the tool bar and my laptop doesn't I have the same programs that I use to view .dll files. Restorator and CMD to take ownership on the file by right-clicking on the file and choosing Take Ownership.
