Add Any program Of Your Choice In The Right Click Menu

Add Any program Of Your Choice In The Right Click MenuWhen you right click on any folder, you can have access to that application, the same as using Send To and New. To add an application of your choice you need to follow the steps given below:
  • Goto Start-->Run.
  • Open Registry Editor by typing regedit and press enter.
  • Navigate and choose: HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shell.
  • Add a new Key to the Shell Key and name it anything you like. Give it a default value that will appear when you right click a folder, i.e. NewKey (use an & in front of any character and it will allow you to use the keyboard).
  • Navigate and click on the registry key: HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shell\NewKey.
  • Now you have to add a New Key named Command and Set the (Default) value of the application you want to run.
  • For example: c:\program files\internet explorer\iexplore.exe (Include the full path)
