Windows 7: Adding a program to Folder and/or Disk context menu

Adding a program to Folder and/or Disk context menu

I suspect this is in here somewhere, but I haven't found it.

Windows 7 Professional, 64-bit.

When I right-click on a disk or folder, in the context menu that pops up, I'd like to add a program and have it start from that folder. I believe I've found the area in the registry where the context menu is (at least the folder one), and I can see what's currently there, but I want to add an additional item and command.

Specifically, I want to run Agent Ransack from the context menus. It appears to have a command line, so if someone can tell me how to do the process of adding the item I'll give it a try...

Can't you use this? Always worked for me, but been awhile since I've used it. Hope it helps!

I don't know. I didn't know that program existed. I'll give it a try......

Worst case, I'll need to go into the registry and add the command. One problem I have is I don't know the location of the disk context menu. I can find the menu for FOLDERS, but I haven't found the one for a DISK. I'll go look at ShellExView, but can someone tell me how to get to the disk context menu?

I read that the other day, but I don't think I translated it into actually getting the thing in all the folders... I'll reread and try to pay attention!
