    In file Add_Attributes_context_menu.reg, you used terminology "subfiles"; probably unintentionally?
    Hello,

    If you mean like in the bottom item in the bottom example screenshot, then that would be correct since it would get applied to the folder and only its subfiles (file content).

    Yeah, I know. Just sub of the folder.

    Doing so would prevent all users from being able to use the context menu, and could cause issues if the wrong system item got hidden.

    I will look into adding an elevated option in the context menu though.

    For now, you could manually if you like.

    makes sense. Personally ill likely only be the ever person ever to touch one of my pc's but you serve a preeeeetty hefty chunk of the windows 10 user population id imagine :)

    in this specific case, i just took ownership of the folder. saves me from having to confirm moves of shortcuts in my start menu and other such nonsense.

    however I can see it being a pain in other areas at some point so if an elevated variant ended up existing :P

    either way, no hurry!

    Probably will not be able to have separate elevated options since it would exceed the context menu items limit.

    Only way would be to have a separate context menu for elevated, but not sure if it's needed enough to warrant it. If enough folks want that option, I will see what I can do though.

    yep, again understandable.

    I dont even know how you do all you do. Wait and see if anyone else pops in and deems it useful. I know i just hate redundancy and i use the context menu so i dont have to go into properties. If i have to go into properties half the time anyways......

    you get the idea :P
