I found a program to load a program in one Context Menu, but it was the wrong Menu.
That is when I became aware of how MANY Context Menus there are...!

Does it take a different approach to make changes to each of them..?

Desktop Context Menu - My Computer Context Menu - Drives Context Menu

Folder Context Menu - File Context Menu - ExeFile Context Menu

There is only one context menu. It is called "context" because it adapts depending on the context (or situation) in which it is being used.

The context menu for the desktop will be different than the one for the taskbar because the context has changed. However, it is still the same menu, just with different entries.

It can be accessed in a couple locations in the Registry.

Thanx Richard, that clarifies how all of those different menus.... fit. In the mean time... I found a SOLUTION for how to place programs in individual Context Menus.

"Easy Context Menu v1-6".

It can be found at this address:

...along with additional interesting software. After trying have a dozen "Context Menu" programs I had just about given up...
