    This works in Winbuilder , Windows PreBoot Environment for Win10x64, also.

    I changed "Position" from "Bottom" to (wild guess on my part) "Top" to put it at the top of the rightclick context menu for higher visibility. I searched and have not found any other possible positions.

    Glad to hear it Tony. Yeah, it's pretty much "Top" or "Bottom", or delete the "Position" value for default. :)
