    Hello jrjr, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    Do you see the "Personalize (classic)" context menu instead of just "Personalize"

    As a test, remove the context menu and add it back to see how it works for you afterwards.

    When you merge the add .reg file, be sure to approve all the prompts for it to fully merge. :)
