    Thanks KeithM for the suggestions.

    What you should do is export:
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\Z001AAA
    Then do a search & replace in the reg file, replacing "Z001AAA" with "MyMenu". Saving & merging should create a duplicate memu without the softtware name.
    Once you have the menu you want for one type of ProgID, you can export it & use Search/Replace to create the reg ifles for other items:

    • *
    • AllFilesystemObjects
    • DesktopBackground
    • Directory
    • Directory\Background
    • Drive
    • Folder (includes virtual/non-FileSystem/NavigationPaneItems)
    I will have a go at that later!

    I assume that I can add the completed working menu to ALL 7 sections that you have listed to make it available wherever I am in the OS, is that correct please?

    Thanks in advance.

    @Paul Black

    Put the whole works in Computer\HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell

    (There are some discrepancies in the script...)

    Yes, you can. Might be excessive, though...

    Haven't checked them all yet, but, Programs and Features command should be: explorer.exe Shell:::{2559a1f3-21d7-11d4-bdaf-00c04f60b9f0}

    I would also suggest creating the entries manually so it's not such a pain to modify one or more at a time...

    As an added note:

    You won't see the Menu in certain Directories such as This PC or Recycle Bin, etc.

    In Windows 10, all of the Ribbon commands are stored in the Registry under one single key for Explorer called "CommandStore".


    It was typo mistake single % percentage sign will do.


    Code:
    Reg.exe add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\CommandStore\shell\ProgramsAndFeatures" /ve /t REG_SZ /d "ProgramsAndFeatures" /f
    Reg.exe add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\CommandStore\shell\ProgramsAndFeatures" /v "icon" /t REG_SZ /d "appwiz.cpl" /f
    Reg.exe add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\CommandStore\shell\ProgramsAndFeatures\command" /ve /t REG_SZ /d "control appwiz.cpl" /f

    I am now thinking that this might be the best approach!

    I am in the process of creating a customised ISO that I will use for a clean install and then make a few adaptions during installation using Audit Made.

    What I am trying to do here is to come up with a working solution that I can implement [Context menus] after the clean install so that the OS is pretty much exactly what I want. Hence the use of several third-party software to get the Context Menu[s] how I want them.

    What I might do, as I have the Context Menus with the EXTRAS included using the third-party software, is to EXPORT them, adapt them, and then I can IMPORT them [run them as a REG file] into the clean installed OS. Things like the System Tools etc I would like to ba available at several locations!

    Thanks in advance.
