Context Menu in Windows 7

I want to ADD both the " copy to folder" and "move to folder" in the context menu. I only have "copy" which is not as efficient when moving photos around. In my current menu these two items are grayed out and I am unable to change them per instructions previously found on this site. Is there another way to make the change?

As a test, try merging the .reg file in step 1 from both Option 1 and Option 2 again to see if you have them available afterwards.

What location are you trying to copy/move from? I'll test to see if I see the same.

It sounds like you may have removed them instead of adding them.

Please go ahead and post a screenshot showing them in the context menu to see if anything stands out.
