    right click context menu customize question ** see attachment **


    Hi Guys,

    i have attached a ATTACHMENT of what ive been editing to make it clearer...

    when i right click a picture of any kind i was able to add a "icon" near Edit with paint and a "icon" near Print and a icon for "notepad" (txt) files....

    I would like to add a icon near Edit with Photos but i cant seem to find the registry key for it.

    i've tried looking everywhere, most of the edits come from here HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations but as for Edit with Photos i cant seem to find where to add the Icon String line....

    please see attachment..
    thank you !!

    Hello Stevie, :)

    The registry location below is for the "Edit with Photos" context menu. You'll need to manually add the "Icon" string value there.

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AppX43hnxtbyyps62jhe9sqpdzxn1790zetc\Shell\ShellEdit

    Unfortunately, apps use a .png file for their icon instead of an .ico. You could use the one below if you like.

    Photos.ico

    "Set as desktop background" is located in the keys below.

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations\.bmp\Shell\setdesktopwallpaper

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations\.dib\Shell\setdesktopwallpaper

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations\.gif\Shell\setdesktopwallpaper

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations\.jfif\Shell\setdesktopwallpaper

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations\.jpe\Shell\setdesktopwallpaper

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations\.jpeg\Shell\setdesktopwallpaper

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations\.jpg\Shell\setdesktopwallpaper

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations\.png\Shell\setdesktopwallpaper

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations\.tif\Shell\setdesktopwallpaper

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations\.tiff\Shell\setdesktopwallpaper

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations\.wdp\Shell\setdesktopwallpaper

    You're welcome.

    You can add a MUIVerb string value at each key location above, and modify its value with the text you want to see instead.

    No problem.

    You can add a MUIVerb string value to the key location below, and modify its value with the text you want.

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\regfile\shell\edit

    Sure, but it would be best to create a new thread for a different issue instead so this one stays on topic. :)
