    Hi Shawn, still have the "Open command window here" in the Shift+Right click.
    If you added the context menu using the tutorial below, step 4 below should be able to remove it.

    I think that is the problem, the menu item was there before adding anything, it came with 20H2 along with "Open PowerShell window here", I can't remove either one of them.

    I just did a scan on the registry for "Open command " and this was the result:
    Code:
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\WOW6432Node\CLSID\{858DACA2-78B4-412F-9A4E-315BBB4E1F21}]
    ""="Open Command Prompt as Admin Command"
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Drive\shell\OpenCmdHereAsAdmin]
    ""="Open command (Admin)"
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Directory\shell\OpenCmdHereAsAdmin]
    ""="Open command (Admin)"
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Directory\background\shell\OpenCmdHereAsAdmin]
    ""="Open command (Admin)"
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{858DACA2-78B4-412F-9A4E-315BBB4E1F21}]
    ""="Open Command Prompt as Admin Command"

    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\OpenCmdHereAsAdmin]
    ""="Open command (Admin)"

    Test scanning for cmd2. I believe that was the original key for it.

    I use 20H2. I only have "Open PowerShell window here".

    If I wanted it, I would write a script to add it.

    No results. The reason I scanned for "Open command " is because that is what is displayed in the menu.

    As you have found no cmd2, your problem was not caused by Brink's REG file.

    I didn't say it was, the item was present before Brink's REG file as it is on all PCs running Windows 10 as a stock item.
