  • Explorer - right-click on file - have a Powerbasic program as an option

    When I right-click on a file (of ANY file extension) or directory, amongst other items in the menu that pops up are things such as "View with Photoshop", "Print with Photoshop", "Scan with AntiVirus", etc.
    Does anybody know how to add those entries without using a CLSID and DLL ?
    For example, it should be possible to add "View With Notepad" , where it just sends to "notepad.exe %1". I know that is easy done with the Send To submenu, but Id like my program in the main menu, not the Send To submenu

      Semen,
      "\*\" works, but thats a bad idea, because it overwrittes some Apps. I added the Hexeditor "HIEW" to "\*\" and it overwrittes the standard Programm for .res files (VC++).

      Placeing the link in "*file" is a much better idea (e.g. "exefile", "dllfile", "txtfile", "basfile", "htmlfile" and so on).

      regards,
      Sven

        Sven, I want it to work on all files though, so I would preferably only want to use one or two keys
        Im confused about the over-writing youre talking about, Ill have to play around with it
        Thanks Semen, Sven
