Apps :: Adding Applications To Context Pulldown Menu

Jan 14, 2016

When I converted to Win 10, my Context pull down in what WE called "Windows Explorer" to see our file structure, is missing one my most important programs I used in Windows 7 and it had it there.

To EDIT a VIDEO, all suffixes, I highlighted the file, just left clicked and selected AGTxxxx (.exe) and away we went. My Context in Window Explorer has a zillions listed but not AGTxxxx.exe and a re-installed of the program did no good. It must not like AGT programs.

I would like to add this and other AGT programs to the list for rapid launches. The web is full of how to add NOTEPAD but not an EXE that I can find. In Win 7 it was easy, just drill down to the proper area of the Registry and add, but seems 10 has been changed the location.

How to ADD AGTxxxx.exe, etc, to Window 10 AND at the same time, remove some of the programs listed in the context that are not appropriately used or needed.

Dec 15, 2015

Today I got an update, and I noticed afterwards that the Windows 10 context menu when you right click the desktop went back to the old version and not the Windows 10 version. Also, the context menu for right clicking in the taskbar turned black in the background. Not sure what changed and how to make things the way I remember.

Apps :: How To Add Run As Administrator To Context Menu Of MSI Files

Aug 26, 2015

Run as administrator - Add to MSI File Context Menu - Windows 7 Forums

Is this still applicable for windows 10? I have not yet attempted to do this.

In my Downloads folder there are right click options to Install / Repair / Uninstall the LibreOffice installation file. I upgraded from windows 7 64 bit to windows 10 on my Lenovo G560 laptop.

I have looked at the Local Services setting for Windows Installer. The Manual option was off and I have started the service. There is no option (or I am unable) to switch to Automatic.

I have previously tried run the following commands from the cmd prompt as administrator.

C:WINDOWSsystem32>sfc /scannow
- no errors were found.

I then followed the instructions to unregister and re-register Windows installer :

On the "Start" menu, Type Run in the search bar and hit enter.In the "Open" box, type "msiexec /unreg", and then press ENTER.On the "Start" menu, Type, Run in the search bar and hit enter.In the "Open" box, type "msiexec /regserver", and then press ENTER.

The other command I tried from the cmd prompt as administrator for the file filename.msi

C:WINDOWSsystem32>msiexec.exe /i C:myfoldernamefilename

I got the following message.

"The installation package could not be opened. Verify that you can access it, or contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid Windows Installer package."

I have downloaded the .msi file twice, and have downloaded from this site on many occasions without problems.

Context Menu Sometimes Works And Sometimes Does Not

Aug 7, 2015

When I right click on something to get the context menu, it sometimes works and sometimes does not.

Here are three images showing how it appears. As you can see, there is a completely variable response as to what appears. I am using the standard Windows 10 theme in a completely fresh install (not an upgrade) on a new hard disk.

Right Click Context Menu

Sep 15, 2015

I just upgraded my laptop from windows 7 to windows 10 and everything went very smoothly on the outside but I'm finding some hiccups as I go along. When I right click the start menus I do get the context menu with all the shortcuts to various apps. But when I click on, say for instance, Control Panel, instead of going to "Control Panel" I get a dialog box opening saying "Express Zip Free Version" This free version of Express Zip is licensed for non-commercial use only; Please confirm that:" then there are two options to click on and I'll only include the first one for sake of brevity, "Certify that this program is for non-commercial use only". Why in the name of all that is good does this dialog open and not a program from the context menu?

Adding Bat File To Start Menu?

Oct 15, 2015

I created the file google.bat with the following content: start "" "[URL] ...."

What I want to do is add this file to the start menu.

The objective is to be able to execute it with Cortana by saying "hey Cortana, open google".

If I add the file into C:Users**User**AppDataRoamingMicrosoftWindowsStart MenuProgramsSystem Tools

it doesn't show on the start menu.

At one point I added a folder (and it did show on the start menu) into c:program dataMicrosoftwindowsstart menuprograms

but when I restarted the computer it disappeared.

Inconsistent Shell Context Menu

Sep 26, 2015

I noticed something peculiar this morning. The Explorer right-click context menu is inconsistent on what it displays.

For example, when I right-clicked on one folder, it displays the "Add to Windows Media Player List" and "Play with Windows Media Player" options.

However, when I right-clicked on another folder, these options are absent.

Whether these options appear in the context menu seems to be entirely arbitrary. About half of the folders have the options, and the rest do not.

Customization :: Adding Actions To Right Click Menu

Oct 20, 2015

I Windows 7 I had additional actions in the Explorer Right Click Menu, such as Edit with Photoshop for image files. I'm fairly sure I added these manually, but I can't remember how. I'm also curious why they have gone.

There was a dialog box to enter them as I recall, with a command string ending in %1.

Is there a way to add these in W10, preferably an easier way?

Apps :: Default Video And Photo Applications Keep Changing To Windows Apps

Feb 2, 2016

My problem is that I set Media Player Classic for MP4, MPG, AVI, MKV and other formats and Windows Photo Viewer for JPG, PNG etc. The next day for some unknown reason I see these associated with Windows Video and Photo app instead! I right-slick on a MP4 files, select Open with->Choose Default app and set Windows Media Player Classic again for the millionth time. The next day I see the MP4 files associated with build-in Windows Video app!

I usually leave my computer running with the monitor switched off when in work (so I can access it via TeamViewer), rarely restart, if that matters. For other details see my specs.

Customization :: Add Shut Down To Desktop Context Menu

Jul 29, 2015

I finished upgrading my laptop to Window 10 Pro and I got Microsoft Money Sunset and Frontpage 2003 working. So I am happy.

An old problem came back, after a shutdown, the system "resumes" instead of starting without the option of allowing me to get into the bios. I had a fix for that for Windows 8.1 but when I tried that for Windows 10, let just say I was glad I had created a restore point.

So if your are listening Brink will you be updating your registry fix for Windows 10?
