    I created a version of this that re-opens explorer to the folder or item the context menu was triggered from. So it will restart explorer completely, then launch explorer to where you left off to avoid the need to refind the last place you were working.

    If anyone likes this let me know.



    You can find my script on my pastebin profile: Add_Restart_Explorer_Context_Menu.reg - Pastebin.com

    Paul,

    If you are interested in restarting explorer & re-opening File explorer windows more directly [i.e. without use of the context menu] then see Keith's script - post #19

    I do already have one that I created in my Toolbar that I use. It is just nice to see the different variations that members come up with to perform the same task.
