Windows 7: Right click context menu options

02 Dec 2011   #11


Ok, performed an sfc, and it does say there are corrupt registry files, but I cannot get inot the CBS.log file in C:\windows\logs\cbs. So have no way of verifying what they are or how to repair them. Any ideas anyone?

Hello Imperfect1, and thanks for taking the time to reply. I had kind of given up on this, it wasnt the "end of the world" or anything like that, but a bit inconvenient and slightly worrying from the point of how did my files or registry get corrupted. However, in the second link you posted there does seem to be a notation near the top that does shed some light on this subject: "NOTE: In the C: drive, C:\Program Files, C:\Program Files (x86), and C:\Windows root directory folders and all of their subfolders, you will only have New - Folder available."
Now, that actually explains it. I posted this problem in "", and actually asked (copy/paste from that thread)
"Is there any reason why my options under right click\new would be limited to just "folder" while in some folders in W7 Ultimate?"
I have not received a reply to that but the link you posted does exactly that, so thank you very much. Although not a fix in the true sense, I now know nothing is broken, and that nails this issue, unless Im reading it wrong, but I dont think so. So, again big thanks for the link...and peace of mind

So glad the mystery is solved --- even though I know you would've preferred a different answer, giving you more customization options. And of course, keep you eye out for other 3rd party apps that might give you some additional options.
