    Correct, if wanting it to open PowerShell 7 instead.

    If you like though, you can go ahead and just delete it for now. I'm going to create a new tutorial hopefully today to add a "Open with PowerShell 7" context menu using a different context menu so people can still have both if wanted. I'll post back with a link to this new tutorial when it's finished.
    Great. Thank you. Do you remember if Powershell v7 installs right click menu entries as well?

    Got it. You know what would be useful? Creating a cascading context menu called "Shell" or "Command" or something similar and relevant that contains entries for command prompt, powershell, GIT, Linux shell, and even terminals. It seems like a cascaded menu option would reduce context menu clutter. Could that be a future tutorial?

    It's possible, but many may prefer to add only the ones they want instead of all like that.

    I take that back. There is an option to add a context menu for PowerShell 7 during installation.

    I don't see a way to add/remove the context menu after installation from any settings though.

    Ok great. So then I would just need to disable the default extended "open powershell menu" right click option then?

    If you mean for PowerShell 7, then you many need to run the MSI installation file again to uncheck the box to remove the context menu for now.

    I'm currently testing to see how it adds the context menu for a universal way to manually add and remove it without having to use the MSI file.

    @bamajon1974,

    I think it would be best to uninstall and reinstall PowerShell 7 to add/remove the PowerShell 7 Open here context menus.

    There's a 32-bit and 64-bit version of PowerShell 7 that uses different installation paths depending on if you have 32-bit or 64-bit Windows 10 installed. Not to mention, different versions of PowerShell 7 may change things.

    It's very doable to create .reg files to do this, but it may get confusing for some with this, and may change with new releases.

    • 64-bit Windows 10 = 32-bit ("Program Files (x86)") and/or 64-bit ("Program Files") PowerShell 7
    • 32-bit Windows 10 = Only 32-bit ("Program Files") PowerShell 7


    I'm still going to create a new tutorial for the PowerShell open here context menus though. I like a good challenge.
