    I followed this exactly, and nothing happens. At first, all of the files got moved to syswow64. After moving everything to the right folder, I can see DVDOPEN created in my temp, but nothing happens.

    Ahhhhhhhhh! When the batch file was created, it neglected to add my default optical device, so the command line was
    Code:
    nircmd.exe cdrom open
    , not
    Code:
    nircmd.exe cdrom open f:
    - But since that is supposed to be detected via the Computer's default Drive, what was happening was, I had UltraISO installed with 1 Virtual Drive set up, and that drive letter preceded my optical drive, so the Virtual drive was E: and the Optical drive was F:, ergo, it was detecting drive E: as Default, which, of course, it was probably ejecting the image I had mounted, but I couldn't see it, HAHAHA. Oh My! What a pain in the Eeema.

    Hello Jonny,


    Looking at your other post below for this, you might see if starting over from scratch may help in case there may have been something else you missed.

    Be sure to unblock the downloaded files on your desktop before moving them into the System32 folder.

    How to get back right-click Close Tray on optical drive?

    Dawned on me, I use UltraISO to install everything, don't use my optical drives for anything but my music CDs to import em into iTunes. :lol:

    BTW... I feel more at home HERE, than at Windows 8, despite racking up a huge rep there haha. Even though I really liked the original Windows 8. In 8.1 they started sticking us in the eye with the pointy end of "Needle" that Arya Stark carries around... That was when I lost interest in all new MS OS's, hell, gimme a Mac Pro tower. But from what I learned from using 8, I can fix any Windows machine on any OS now, including Windows 10's sandboxed Program Files and Windows folders. :ROTFLMAO:

    Is it possible to have this only on the context menu when right-clicking the disc drive?

    I have an internal disc drive in the computer, but then at times I'll have one or more other disc drives connected, and variously with virtual disc drives going too (though I'm not sure how a virtual drive would be affected or affect anything in this context).

    If it's just a desktop or general option, then I don't know how you target any particular drive.

    Hello hasefo,

    Sure thing. The .reg file below will remove the context menu from the other locations, and only have it added to the context menu of drives instead.

    Works in All my Windows versions!


    Thank you to the original author and NirSoft for all the wonderful and useful programs.
    I'm currently using this method in Windows 7, 10, 11 and Windows 11 Insider Preview 25236. It just works everywhere!
