    Arranging Context Menu Items.


    I spent yesterday fiddling with my context menu (Right-Click Menu). I downloaded and installed nearly a dozen different apps/programs. I settled on a couple and went to work adding commands. Here's the problem: Once the items show up in the Context/Right Click menu, there's no way to arrange them. Alphabetically, for example. They appear alphabetical in the software interface and in the registry, but not in the menu itself.

    Any ideas?

    I use Windows 10 Manager made by Yamicsoft to do this.

    Gary,
    I use the same program. There is no option to re-arrange the menu items...unless I'm missing it?

    Yes. You can determine one of three positions for your new command...but if you have, say, 7 commands in the top of the menu, you can not arrange them individually. The order they appear in the context menu editor of WIN10 Manager is NOT the order they actually appear in the context menu. Nor, in fact, do they follow the order they appear in the actual system registry. I can't find a way to screen capture my right click menu or I'd show you.

    Maybe if you look in the custom tab??

    Gary,
    In a Round-About way, you were right about Yamicsoft Context Menu Customizer.
    After uninstalling the programs I thought might work, then restoring all context menu items to default...unchecking all those I never use, THEN adding custom entries, they are showing up alphabetized in the context/right-click menu.
    I can't assign "Top/Middle/Bottom" positions, but all custom entries appear in the middle. Good Enough!
    Thanks for making me re-think this.
