Master your context menus
“Make the right-click menu work for you by adding brilliant new tools and options, and removing the ones you never use”
The Windows context menu, which appears when you right-click a file or folder, is packed with handy tools. Not only can you open, copy or delete a file or folder using it, you can also use it to pin items to the Taskbar for quick access, scan them for viruses with Windows Defender (very useful if it’s something you’ve just downloaded), or create a handy shortcut.
The context menu is capable of so much more, though. With a few extra programs, you can transform this humble list into a powerful resource that will save you time and make everyday tasks effortless.
You can customise the Windows tools available when you right-click a file, making it easier to power down your PC, change properties, or empty the Recycle Bin. Alternatively, If your context menu is cluttered, there’s an easy way to get it under control so it only shows the options you use.
Cat’s best tip! If you’re feeling brave, you can edit the context menu via Windows’ Registry editor. See http://bit.ly/1MSuBoT
