    Hello @Sorrymyen, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    If you like, post your .reg file for your context menu, and I'll be happy to take a look at it to see what may be wrong.

    Failed act. I got confused with the code tag. We will see now...

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\zMover para]

    Does the commands show up in the registry after merging it?

    Thanks for topic.

    I've been looking for a solution to customize it for several years. This is what I have achieved thanks to all you.

    Unfortunately, only the first item on submenu can move files, the others do absolutely nothing.
    The Paths shown in the image show the forward slash / but needs to use the backslash \ in file management.

    I also thought about it, Berton, but it also did not work with backslashes. Also, unless I'm wrong, forward slashes are only in "MUIVerb" titles, not in commands. One way or another, I can only move files within the same partition, as long as it's not for the root of it.

    And yes, Brink, I can see them in Regedit as ...

    As shown in the right panel of your image the space plus a forward slash is used with Switches on a command, that's normal as shown in this partial snip of a Command Prompt window:

    I haven't been seeing any issues with moving to different Folders on the same or different drives or partitions. I do run into a renaming issue now and then on downloaded files where the change isn't accepted unless I first add a character and save then rename the file to remove the offending character, haven't figured that out yet but not a killer of a problem.

    But the use of quotation marks would nullify such behavior (cmd /c move /y "%1" "D:\apps"), would not it?

    Do you use the registry directly for this or some program that handles context menus? In the first hypothesis, could I share it here so that I can correct mine?

    I don't see any mention of quotes in the Help screen so don't know about their effect, might be something in my old DOS Batch Files manual but will have to try finding it [haven't needed it a long time].

    I don't use the Registry for file management, just Move and Copy or simple drag and drop.

    I thought we were talking about customizable context menus via registry.

    I also have no issues moving and copying files to different locations, partitions and drives using the native cut and copy commands in W10. My dream of Archimedes is to find a way to put folders as different destinations in a CopyTo menu.

    Please, post your code, it looks interesting.

    Well, finally I was able to find the command that copies folders between partitions and deletes the source.
    @="cmd /c robocopy /move /s /e "%1" "X:\\anyfolder""

    New problem: The contents of the folder are copied throughout its structure, except for the parent folder itself.
