    Adding applications to Context pulldown menu in Win 10


    When I converted to Win 10, my Context pull down in what WE called "Windows Explorer" to see our file structure, is missing one my most important programs I used in Windows 7 and it had it there.

    To EDIT a VIDEO, all suffixes, I highlighted the file, just left clicked and selected AGTxxxx (.exe) and away we went.
    My Context in Window Explorer has a zillions listed but not AGTxxxx.exe and a re-installed of the program did no good.
    it must not like AGT programs. (AGT is a fake name) to protect the innocent.

    I would like to add this and other AGT programs to the list for rapid launches.
    The web is full of how to add NOTEPAD but not an EXE that I can find.
    In Win 7 it was easy, just drill down to the proper area of the Registry and add, but seems 10 has been changed the location.

    Anyone know how to ADD AGTxxxx.exe, etc, to Window 10
    AND at the same time, remove some of the programs listed in the context that are not appropriately used or needed.

    Hey jagman-

    I'm not sure I completely understand the program you're looking for, but it sounds like you're looking for something that allows you to add programs to your context (right-click) menu? If so, they have one HERE, which is freeware. It does not indicate that it's compatible with Win10, however I've been using it without any problems.

    You can add any exe file that you want.

    Example of mine, which shows just the three I added. You can add as many as you want- I think.

    Yes, what I wanted was.
    In Windows 7 and I installed programs from AVS4YOU, for Video Remaker to EDIT a video, it put it in the context so all I had to do was highlight the video, right click, select "Video Remaker" and it would open REMAKER, etc.
    Window 10 did not do that, but it listed about ever other program that was VIDEO related EXCEPT the remaker.
    Question, does your option only open the program or will it open the file in the program you are highlighted on.

    Yes, I find it very handy too.

    Also, in case you missed it, you can also include an icon for your entry to make it easier to see. So, if a program did not display an icon after you added it to the context menu, you can use your own. You would just need to navigate to one, pretty much the same way you navigated to the .exe files. You will need the icon however (.iso file format)
