    I haven't been able to get it to use Shift + Right Click with the usual "Extended" string value.

    thanks but the menu only appear in some folders (the one shown in search mode, which is cool) but not on other folders. And it does not show on any files. Any idea why?

    Hello chok, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    When you right click or press and hold on a :shortcut of a file", "shortcut of a folder", "file or folder in search results", or a "file or folder in a library" in File Explorer, you should see a Open file location or Open folder location context menu item to open the source location of the file or folder with the file or folder selected.
