Windows 7: New Context Menu - Remove & Restore Default Menu Items

07 Dec 2011   #70

64-bit Windows 10 Pro

As a test, create a new administrator account to see how the New context menu works while logged on to it.

If it still does not work, then you could try doing a system restore using a restore point dated before this started to hopefully undo and fix it.

This worked for me!

Thanks Shawn. I dealt with this problem for months. There were work-a-rounds but now resolution.

I had to actually "remove" the default menu first and then "restore" it. That's probably what the instructions said to do in the first place...right?

Thanks again.

Hello Gramps, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Im happy to hear that you got it sorted. Normally, you would only need to remove it first if it wasn't working by just adding it. :)
