    1803 Update & Context Menu Changes


    Quite a few of the Context Menu Additions from the Tutorials have disappeared from my File Explorer Rt Click Menu and From the Desktop Rt Click menu following the 1803 Update. Easy enough to put them back in, but has anyone else noticed this?

    Instead of resolving one issue they create something else to make it worse.

    Thanks @Edwin this is the first time it's happened to me. Like this is the first time System Protection was disabled with an update. Anyway, I feel better knowing others are enjoying this little feature too.

    I have multiple "customized" settings. I have noticed with the two previous "big" updates, that these settings have reset. That's why I have a Notepad file that logs down all my customized settings. I always refer to that file whenever things happen.

    I'll post a short example of what it contains:

    Text File said:
    Set other Preferred View Settings
    1) Right click in the bottom right corner of the monitor and press Peek at desktop
    2) Properly group the devices in File Explorer
    a) Go to: X:\Other Stuff\Programs\Utility & Security Applications\ Utility Applications\OldNewExplorer\1.1.8.2
    b) Open OldNewExplorerCfg.exe
    c) Press the Install button
    d) Check: Use classical drive grouping in This PC
    3) Set up the user account picture
    a) Press Start -> press the user picture -> Make changes to my account in PC settings
    b) Under Create your picture, press Browse for one
    c) Select the Microsoft Duck located at X:\Other Stuff\Essential Computer Files\Microsoft Windows 10\ Other Files\Profile Picture
    etc...

    The layout in my Text File is more organized than this Copy/Paste =D

    I often wondered about this happening, but it never did until this time around. I've got mine put back together now all's right again.
