    Cascading menu for text editors

    I was wondering if it's possible to make a cascading menu for the different editors. They like to add their entries to the 'main' section of the context menu, which can get crowded.

    and shelltoys allowed moving context menu items to a 'Rarely used' folder.

    Trying to find something current may be hard.

    You might want to consider which editors are relevant to which extensions.

    This suggests extensive registry hacking (I provide it merely on an indicative basis):
