    Scott, am using XP.

    Okay, Dave, got the same results here. Clever. What's neat is that the effect is immediate. No need to rerun Explorer (actually I use Explorer Plus).

    Now to figure out something useful for it. {grin}

    Worked fine under Vista too, but only after the manifest was added.

    Any code around to also add an icon with your text to these menus?

    I'm missing something here. Just what is supposed to be happening?
    Here's what I see on my machine (WinXP - no manifest), after using the "Add right-click to "Windows Explorer" for .Exe files" button...
    Open a folder window and right click a file with .exe extension, you should see a new item in the popup menu = "Windows Explorer - Right-click".
    If you click that new menu option, a new instance of Pierre's app is opened, this one has the path of the subject file added to the "%L = " label at the bottom of the window.. cute!



    Remove the new right click option by using the same button again (now titled Clean registry for "Windo...etc")

    Pierre,

    I just tried your code (don't recall seeing it before. Missed it first time round, I guess). I don't see anything happening. Clicking the buttons, then running Explorer, there seems to be no change in either of the RightClick menus in Explorer.

    Are you running Vista? If so it definitely needs a manifest with ADMIN rights.

    Note that you'll have to incorporate an

    Any examples of how to get these newly added items on the context menu to have separators around them?

    Any examples of how to add an icon with the item?

    I agree Tyrone,
    Unless you find some need for your niche (aka, unless you start feeling that need to support it because users demand it), then forget VISTA

    From time to time I ask about VISTA but only because I want to prepare for the stage of "What IF???"....but to date only a handful if not less customers that demand such level

    Hopefully it will die out much like ME did, but you always have to prepare for the unexpected

    Thanks!

    Vista sucks.. I really won't worry about that OS. (I'll go Linux if 2K/XP become the minority)

    started a topic How to?

    How to?

    How do I add a property to the File Explorer Right click options? I've seen this done with VB activeX. Anyone created a simple module/function to do this with PB and maybe associate at it with an EXE.

    (Sorta like .ZIP does) - I don't really have a use for it, but I want to add this to my code library. Anyone willing to trade code library snippets can feel free to email me.
