Customization :: Adding Ctrl F Command To Internet Explorer Context Menu
Feb 10, 2016
How do I add the keyboard shortcut command "ctrl+F" to the Internet Explorer context menu? I know where I need to go in the registry to add an item to the context menu of Internet Explorer, but I don't know how to add a keyboard shortcut.
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.
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.
In Windows 10 build 10586 ContextMenu (right-click on start menu items) is changed and is divided to 2 parts as seen below (Menu >). Is a way to get back the build 10240 behavior and show a single menu?
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?
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?
i noticed like 2 updates ago that the new context menu size increased so much. now i have to scroll to see the bottom just to see proprieties and rename. its annoying id like the old context menu, is there a way to get the old menu back?
I spent yesterday fiddling with my context menu (Right-Click Menu). I downloaded and installed nearly a dozen different apps/programs. I settled on a couple and went to work adding commands. Here's the problem: Once the items show up in the Context/Right Click menu, there's no way to arrange them. Alphabetically, for example. They appear alphabetical in the software interface and in the registry, but not in the menu itself.
Looking to remove the "pin to start" context menu from Windows 10, I use startmenu replacement and that option is very much in the way.There was a way for win 8.1.Files in Windows 8..But reg files changed, so how to get Win 10 version of it?
I have created Eject "N", etc for each drive letter from G-Z and they all work. They will safely remove my external HDDs. I have also created a context menu entry for Safely Remove > and it has a string value for subcommands, none of which will show when hovered upon. I need to move all of my Eject entries under the Safely Remove in order to keep my context menu clutter free.how to do this?
When i try to open pinned items from the explorer icon in the taskbar windows command processor opens with UAC and asks if the app? may do changes to the system..If i click yes or no nothing happens; i think of a setting somewhere but until now i have not found out..
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.
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?
