Windows 7: My Context Menu Tweaks for Windows 7

I can still merge reg files since I reset my association back to regedit.exe but doing so disabled my ability to further change my association setting for reg files in this account only. All other accounts are OK.

I have rebooted since resetting the .reg entries.

I have performed other tweaks using other .reg entries on this account only. The loss of "Edit" and "Merge" option in the right click menu of this account only occured immediately after merging the RegPad entries 32bit.reg.

If I were to do this again I would have simply used the "open with" option and selected regpad as default.

Hopefully this is not detracting from the main focus of this thread and in particular finding a functioning tweak for having the right click search function in windows 7.

The problem with that method is that it actually makes it is secondary open with and the default action is still to merge it into the registry - this set of registry entries actually changes the default action from merging to *opening* and from Notepad to RegPad.

I am surprised that the context menu is disappearing - it works just fine on my machine....

unless there is *something else* for 64bit versus 32bit, such as the possible location of the reg keys themselves...

You can reset again and then go to those keys in the registry and see if they look anything like what I have put into those entries....

i did not see this in search, but was turned on too this progam the other day and some may find it useful - Moo0
Moo0 - 21 freeware and 2 shareware
free version available, and pro is around as well.
After using it a bit i kinda got frustrated about how far or levels i had to go just to delete a file, and a real f'n pain to move a file. This is not to say that some of you may like it a lot.

I found that what i really liked was the permanent delete option which came in useful when making room for more music downloads, i did not have to keep unloading recycle bin.
so I found this instead - called rightdelete 1.3
link
It creates a ´Securely delete this file´ option to context menu.
update - rigthdelete is a piece of S@# do noy waste your time - sorry
Hope you like one of these.

Cintext menu tweaks

Not really, their kind of self explanatory but if you open them with a text editor you can see what registry entries they change and what they do.

WOW xbxhkx, this is so fantastic man, I'm so happy
knew it went on File in folders but had no idea it went on the right click on desktop as well
this turned out to be a lot better then i originally thought, thank you so very much x
if its not to much trouble can i ask you 3 more questions, how do you delete them if u don't want them anymore
got 6 nice ones working for me now that i love, most of them i don't know and if i don't like some of them
it would be nice to be able to take them off if at all possible or if its not what u expected
and is it possible to add programs that you use all the time and how
this would be about the best and coolest thing, again thank you so much for this one
