    Word and Powerpoint missing in New Context Menu Win10


    Hi, I'm new in this forum and seeking for some help (before doing something wrong)
    I am running Windows 10 Home and tryning to add to the context menu: Powerpoint and Word, which are not available (have installed MSOffice 2013).
    Read somewhere that need to adjust regedit file, but I want to be sure what exactly need to do and how.
    Thank you for any help in advance, would be be very much appreciated.

    Hi, have you looked to see what's available with right click, Open With?

    That's where I'd expect to see those listed, assuming they are your defaults for the file extension of the file you right clicked.

    So have you made sure these programs are set as your defaults for all extensions they handle?

    If so, you should not need to do anything technically hard.

    Note: there are plenty of tools (free and commercial) for editing context menu entries. That's far safer than fiddling around in the registry for this.
