    How to Add or Remove Rotate Left and Rotate Right Context Menu in Windows 10


    Windows 10 has a built-in feature to allow you to quickly rotate an image if needed.

    You can rotate left to turn the selected image 90 degrees to the left.

    You can rotate right to turn the selected image 90 degrees to the right.

    This tutorial will show you how to add or remove the Rotate left and Rotate right context menu of image files for all users in Windows 10.

    While you must be signed in as an administrator to add or remove the context menu, all users will be able to use the context menu if added.


    EXAMPLE: "Rotate left" and "Rotate right" context menu

    Excellent tip! The windows 10 context menus are bloody cluttered.

    Save as .bat, run as admin:

    Code:
    :: Remove context menu - "Cast to device"
    reg add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Shell Extensions\Blocked" /v "{7AD84985-87B4-4a16-BE58-8B72A5B390F7}" /t REG_SZ /d "" /f
    :: Remove context menu - "Extract all"

    :: Remove context menu - "Troubleshoot compatibility"

    Unbelievably, these great little registry hacks didn't get it back for me. Even running Remove then Add and there they aren't. I have made friends with http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/shexview.html and can't see an appropriate entry under Context Menu filter, and my right-click-on-a-picture mouse still doesn't want to play!!! SFC is happy - no violations found, so looking for tips on what to try next? I'll post it here if I do happen to stumble across a way to get these recalcitrant little tykes to return from whichever oblivion they have been unwittingly banished to...

    Hello @VinceS, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    As a test, do the rotate buttons work in the ribbon of File Explorer like in Option One below?

    The Picture tools tab has the buttons, but they don't work - at least on .jpg or .png. Click, the menu goes, but the image doesn't rotate like it used to. Hmm, Slide show gets

    I bought Paintshop Pro 2019 and use that for all image editing (and have for last 20+ years since early JASC days), which works fine, so have no interest in built in Apps. Any way I can get them out of my way / disabled I have taken; could have been a mistake there. Unsure when exactly this 'winked out', as primary use for me is rotating attachments to emails that the sender has not understood how to do, and I just got one!

    It is less than 6 months since a fresh install on this PC; doesn't really mean anything when it comes to user-errors!

    Hmm, Slide show gets 'a fail' too. Just to finish off my thought. I see 1903 is waiting to load - we'll see what happens after that...

    there was a glitch... sorted!


    With the upgrade to 1203 the right click menu options are back, they work, and now the Picture tab menu options work too, whereas they just appeared before but clicking didn't do the deed...

    Separate issue - I have put three Quick Replies up here that I don't see. Is that a newbie forced moderation thing or something else? If some now irrelevant posts turn up, I can only apologise for the confusion. THIS one is the winner, if it posts, using Advanced, for luck.....

    - - - Updated - - -

    Yay, Advanced worked! So I will just add this bit of one of the missing posts, being a loosely on-topic contribution:

    Please note when you install that need to untick Result Notification and tick to keep the date as the EXIF date, plus tick to regenerate thumbnails. If you don't do these things you get to press enter every time you run the single Autorotate, have rotation date, and have an unrotated thumbnail. Only way to fix as far as I know is to reinstall. It doesn't take long. Don't ask me how I know....
