How to Add VBScript Script File to New Context Menu in Windows 10

information   Information
A .vbs file is a VBScript (Visual Basic Script) file written in the VBScript scripting language that can be executed within Windows or Internet Explorer via the Windows-based script host (Wscript.exe), and may also use the .vb file extension.

The New context menu allows users to quickly create new files, folders, and shortcuts. You can right click or press and hold on your desktop or in any folder window, and click/tap on New to open the New context menu.

By default, VBScript Script File is not in the New click context menu. Adding "VBScript Script File" to the New context menu will make it easy for users to be able to quickly create a VBScript file on demand ready to be edited afterwards.

This tutorial will show you how to add or remove VBScript Script File to the New context menu for all users in Windows 10.

You must be signed in as an administrator to be able to add or remove "Windows Batch File" from the New context menu.
