    Great find @Paul Black. I was playing with it using the Microsoft.PowerShellScript.1 key earlier, but I kept getting a no program associated error with the context menu for some reason.

    This works though. Tutorial now updated to include the context menu for .ps1 files.
    Thanks @Brink.

    Hello @Brink,

    EXTREMELY useful Tutorial BTW.

    Just an observation that doesn't really matter, but when you right-click a .txt file, there are two instances of Copy Contents to Clipboard in the Context Menu. I think it has to do with this section . . .
    Code:
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\textfile\shell\CopyContents]
    "Extended"=-
    "Icon"="DxpTaskSync.dll,-52"
    "MUIVerb"="Copy Contents to Clipboard"
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\textfile\shell\CopyContents\command]
    @="cmd /c clip < \"%1\""
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\txtfile\shell\CopyContents]
    "Extended"=-
    "Icon"="DxpTaskSync.dll,-52"
    "MUIVerb"="Copy Contents to Clipboard"
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\txtfile\shell\CopyContents\command]
    @="cmd /c clip < \"%1\""
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\txtfilelegacy\shell\CopyContents]
    "Extended"=-
    "Icon"="DxpTaskSync.dll,-52"
    "MUIVerb"="Copy Contents to Clipboard"
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\txtfilelegacy\shell\CopyContents\command]
    @="cmd /c clip < \"%1\""
    As I said, not a real problem as it caters for all instances of text files.

    Also, does . . .
    Code:
    [-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations\.txt\shell\CopyContents]
    . . . need to be added to the Remove_Copy_Contents_to_Clipboard_context_menu REG file?

    @Paul Black,

    Thank you. Remove .reg file updated.

    Odd. I'm not getting duplicate context menus for .txt files.

    I will have a look again tomorrow. I have been performing a lot of registry actions today so I might actually need to do a full shutdown and restart. I will let you know how it goes.

    Hello @Brink,

    Firstly, there is an entry in the Remove_Copy_Contents_to_Clipboard_context_menu.reg file that needs to be removed as it is not included in the Add_Copy_Contents_to_Clipboard_context_menu.reg file . . .
    Code:
    [-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.txt\shell\CopyContents]
    This is the new list in the order that they appear in the Add_Copy_Contents file . . .
    Code:
    [-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\batfile\shell\CopyContents]
    [-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\cmdfile\shell\CopyContents]
    [-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations\.css]
    [-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\htmlfile\shell\CopyContents]
    [-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations\.html\shell\CopyContents]
    [-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\JSFile\shell\CopyContents]
    [-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Microsoft.PowerShellScript.1\Shell\CopyContents]
    [-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\regfile\shell\CopyContents]
    [-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\rtffile\shell\CopyContents]
    [-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations\.txt\shell\CopyContents]
    [-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\textfile\shell\CopyContents]
    [-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\txtfile\shell\CopyContents]
    [-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\txtfilelegacy\shell\CopyContents]
    [-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\VBSFile\shell\CopyContents]

    Secondly, the reason I was getting the double entry was [ I think ] because in my REG file I had them set in a different order to yours. for example . . .
    Code:
    ; *** BAT files ***
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\batfile\shell\CopyContents]
    "MUIVerb"="Copy Contents to Clipboard"
    "Icon"="C:\\Users\\System-Admin\\System-Admin_Master\\System-Admin_Icons\\MyCopy.ico"
    "Position"="Top"
    "Extended"=-
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\batfile\shell\CopyContents\command]
    @="cmd /c clip < \"%1\""
    Where as yours is . . .
    Code:
    "Extended"=-
    "Icon"="DxpTaskSync.dll,-52"
    "MUIVerb"="Copy Contents to Clipboard"
    I think it is probably the position that I had "Extended"=- that caused the problem!
    I removed my REG keys and then ran yours [ with my custom icons ], and the double entry didn't appear!

    Can I ask, is the structure that they are built important [ priority wise ] please?

    Thanks in advance.

    I think I left the [-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.txt\shell\CopyContents] line in the remove .reg file for an older version of the add .reg file to make sure it was removed. It's no longer needed now though, so it's now removed and updated.

    The order of the values under the key in a .reg file really don't matter. I just like to have them in alphabetical order to make it easier to spot them.

    The "Extended"=- line is there to remove the Shift+Right Click requirement if someone used the other add .reg file for Shift+Right Click. It wouldn't have added an extra context menu listing.

    Hello Feuer,

    Correct. The Windows Security and Microsoft Defender icon was changed in version 2004 to what it's my screenshot.
