Right-Click Menu Subfolders?


O

Ominae

I've tried searching for this problem but I think perhaps I lack the
correct language to define exactly what I want to do.

Basically I want to add an item to the right-click menu if I've clicked
on a folder. That item then needs to contain a list of sub-functions
that I can then. Something similar to the 'Send To->' right-click
option. I already know how to add single entries to the right-click
menu but this is getting unweildy and I've got alot of functions I want
to add. It would be of benefit if I could simply have another
sub-right-click menu to store my specialized functions.

Thanks in advance.

Modify the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\Shell registry key. You can see an
example by looking at the current entries there.

Unless I'm missing something what you suggested will only allow me to
add a single command to the right-click menu. Or I should say, a
single command at a time. What I want to do is create an entire
grouping of functions to the right-click menu.

I think I could explain this better with a quick and gritty ASCII
example:

Right-Click Menu:
-------------------------
| Open |
| Explore |
| Search... |
--------------------------
|Send To -> | -> --------------------
------------------------- | Floopy (A:) |
|Properties | ---------------------
-------------------------

What I want is this:
-------------------------
| Open |
| Explore |
| Ominae -> | -> ----------------------
| Search... | | Program 1 |
-------------------------- | Program 2 |
|Send To -> | | Program 3 |
------------------------- ------------------------
|Properties |
-------------------------
*Pardon the crudity of my example but my work computer doesn't allow
access to image sharing websites.

So what I'm looking for is actually a second drop down menu. Nothing
fancy.

Would have been nice if it was something as simple as:

- Shell
|- Ominae
|- command
|- command_2
|- Etc.....

Done in the registry like I do the single commands. A well, c'est la
vie. Thanks for giving me a focus for finding my answers.

You can say that again. Unfortunately, not it's not that simple and requires actual programming. It's odd that such a simple step
up requires such a drastic increase in complexity.

Wow, Ronnie Vernon... as a Microsoft MVP you should know that linking to the Microsoft site is really useless... Most of the utility of support forums is the continued years of many people finding their question and its answer. By linking to the Microsoft site you obliterate that utility, because the Microsoft site is always full to the brim with broken links.

Now the answer is lost and this whole forum post is useless. I'm still looking for the answer to this question...
