    Right click context menu for explorer


    Trying to create a Right click context menu for explorer. I used to be able to launch VLC mediaplayer by right clicking on a Video_ts folder and chose play with VLC, seems to have gone for some reason...tried a few programs to help me with this but no luck yet....just tried Right Click Enhancer Professional

    thought that would do it, but still not happening...maybe someone could help me please

    Thanks

    Presumably you've tried the obvious- reinstalling vlc player.

    Set VLC as default and you'll get the context menu entry.

    Hello
    Thanks, yes tried reinstalling VLC, will download the program you mentioned....
    Just found by chance that Ccleaner now has a context menu facility to delete or disable them found VLC listed for folders, but was disabled....so just re-enabled it...now ok.....strange huh !!!!
