March 5, 2010 | Filed under Software, Windows 7


The right click context menu is a very useful area where we can perform commands such as copy, paste, delete, rename, create shortcut and etc. That is what Microsoft has pre-programmed for us but what if we wanted more such as running our favorite programs or weblinks from there? Or the ability to remove certain programs from the context menu because it’s overcrowded and you don’t use it all the time?

Context Menu editor for Windows Vista and 7 is a tiny freeware tweaking program by which you can add items in your Desktop context menu. The program is capable of adding shortcut of any file or web link in your Desktop context menu. It is a standalone program so you don’t have to worry about installing it. This program is written in C# and requires .Net Framework 2.0 to run. Other than adding, you can also delete items from your desktop and folder context menu.
