Windows 10: Context Menus - (Inconsistencies)

    Context Menus - (Inconsistencies)

    If you're not keen on the 'larger' spacing on some Explorer right click context menus, or,
    have applied a different 'text size' and, perhaps applied 'Bold' but find that the modifications do not adhere,

    here's a quick Registry modification to fix that.

    If you are comfortable modifying the Windows Registry, fine, but I always stress to create a Restore Point before doing so.

    Open the Windows Registry and navigate to:

    In the right pane of 'FlightedFeatures', create a New►DWORD (32-bit) Value,
    name it ImmersiveContextMenu,
    give it a data value of 0 and click OK.

    Close the Registry Editor, restart Explorer or Logoff and back on or Restart.

    That's it!

    Thanks to 'VG' and his team for sharing this tweak.

    Nice one!
    Thank you Edwin, thank you VG.

    It makes it more solid-looking as well.

    Exactly, bold text, in context menus, won't adhere unless you apply this tweak.
