Steps To Add Application To The Windows Context Menu

If you are using a computer that runs on Windows operating system, you’d be very much familiar with the Windows Context Menu. This context menu offers the users a limited set of choices that are available in context of the operating system.

One can also term the context menu as a graphical control element. Here, one can press the Application key or press Shift+F10 keys to open a context menu for the system. For any issues related to the Windows OS, the users can contact the Omni tech support team to get the best technical assistance. But then, one needs to ensure that he is calling up the correct tech support number to avoid being trapped in the Omni Tech Support Scam issues.

You can also make any application accessible in the desktop context menu. For this, all you require is to follow the instructions mentioned below.
  • In the first step, move onto the regedit.exe in the Start Menu. You can also press Windows Key + R and then type regedit.exe and then navigate to this key: HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT > Directory > Background > shell. 
  • Once you are at the location, you need to right-click shell and then select New followed by Key. Here, you need to name the key of the application that you want to add to the context menu. 
  • In the next step, you need to right-click the new key you have just created and then again select New followed by Key. Make sure you enter the key command all in lowercase. 
  • Next, in the new command key folder you just made, you need to double-click the (Default) key located on the right-hand side of the window. Now, move on to the Value data section and then put the path to the executable file for the application, which you want to add to the context menu and then press OK. 
  • Meanwhile, you can also contact the Omni tech support team for getting expert assistance anytime. The Omni Tech Support Scam alerts also warn the customers to use genuine versions of Windows to avoid facing issues later on. 
  • Once you right-click the desktop, you'll be able to run the application that you had added earlier by selecting it with a simple click. Also, you need to remember that by pressing Shift + Right-Click the executable file and selecting Copy as path, you can make the context menu much simpler.
