Editors' Review

FileMenu Tools lets you customize your Windows Explorer experience, so you have all of the tools and options you need at your disposal all of the time. Once you've put your preferences in place with this app, you can enjoy the convenience of customized menus and submenus, as well as a host of other advanced features.

Pros

Customized menus: Through FileMenu Tools, you can choose what items show up on various right-click menus in Windows Explorer. By selecting certain items that you want to have access to quickly and deselecting others that you don't use as much, you'll greatly streamline processes that you carry out routinely. In addition to adding and removing standard items, you can also add your own custom entries to these menus in just a few steps.

Other tools: In addition to menu customization options, this app also provides you with a nice set of other tools to help you increase efficiency while working. These include an Advanced Renamer, tools for copying and moving folders and files to new locations, a command line interface window for advanced users, and many more.

Cons

Overwhelming to beginners: Because there are so many options available in this program, it can be a bit overwhelming to someone without a lot of computer experience. Unfortunately, the Help file doesn't do a very good job of providing an overview of how the program can be used, and its dense presentation of technical information may only serve to increase the frustration of novice users.

Bottom Line

FileMenu Tools is a handy free utility that can provide some excellent benefits to anyone with enough experience or determination to take advantage of all it has to offer. It may be a tough program to get the hang of for new users, but with some persistence, just about anyone can get some good use out of it.

"Beware of the PUPs"

May 14, 2014  |  By MrHenders0n

 |  Version: FileMenu Tools 6.6

Pros

The core software may be useful.

Cons

Tries to install a stupendous amount of PUPs i.e. unwanted junk (some of which puts Malwarebytes into a loop of endless blocking-attempts).

Summary

Be very, very careful.

"Reported Virus Infected"

April 06, 2014  |  By Thunderbird_53

 |  Version: FileMenu Tools 6.6

Pros

I have used version 6.5 and previous versions for years and it is a very handy set of tools for the average or advanced user alike. I have never had any issues with the software, it just works.

Cons

Comodo anti-virus software reported a low risk infection called "ApplicUnwnt@#3dg5sxrf0k88d". It could be a false positive because Virustotal reports as probably harmless and 49 say it is clean with Comodo and ESET-NOD32 reporting an infection. Hard to believe Lopesoft would intentionally risk their reputation. However one cannot be too careful so I am staying with the previous version 6.5, it is reported clean by Comodo and has the same features and functions.

Summary

I would recommend version 6.5 to anyone interested in this software, works flawless, at least until they get this problem sorted.

"It's INFECTED...how many more posts does Cnet need?"

February 07, 2014  |  By Kirby66

 |  Version: FileMenu Tools 6.5

Pros

Absolutely None

Cons

It installs Win32/InstallMonetizer.AF which flys under the detection radar of almost every anti-virus/malware scanner out there except for the Malwarebytes anti-malware scanner. Then this nasty program unleashes several sub-programs and after infecting your computer then it will be detected by the scanning programs that missed it when scanning the original download.

Summary

CNET.....you have lost me as a user simply for the fact that you allow this to be available for download.

December 22, 2013  |  By spectre9

 |  Version: FileMenu Tools 6.5

Pros

none......

Cons

during the installation it downloads and installs malware on your computer

Summary

if you scan the software file itself, there is no virus/malware found. however, during the installation process it connects to a known virus/malware site, downloads malware and installs it on your computer.

"Beware of the crapware FileMenu Tools bundles"

October 19, 2013  |  By anonymuos

 |  Version: FileMenu Tools 6.5

Pros

Excellent set of tools.

Cons

Installs some crapware without permissions to opt out! The installer downloads it quickly and installs it. That's how it supports itself being free. Such sleazy practices should be avoided by the author of FileMenu Tools.

If you don't believe the 2 reports of it bundling unwanted crapware, check out the reviews at Softpedia which also mention this.

"Greatest Solution Ever!"

August 29, 2013  |  By eatdrumz

 |  Version: FileMenu Tools 6.5

Pros

Bypass Microsoft limitations
Everything in one place
Completely configurable
Even I could figure it out!

Cons

None whatsoever

Summary

I somehow lost the ability to create "New Folders" in Windows Explorer. After screwing with the problem for 3 days, I was This recommended on a Microsoft Forum.

Program installed easily. Make sure you check the toolbars you don't want during the installation.

After installation, asks you to configure menu any way you want it.
Used the tools, and all worked to perfection!!

Life saver!

"Do Not Download! Read The Reviews! VIRUS ALERT!!!"

August 09, 2013  |  By AComputerGuy

 |  Version: FileMenu Tools 6.5

Pros

Once you remove all the malicious files, ad-ware, and Trojans installed by a download subroutine, the programs not terrible.

Cons

The installer executes an imbedded download script! This is a deliberate act, and malicious attempt by the products author "www.lopesoft.com" to infect and compromise a users machine! Lopesoft has been able to call their product "virus free" because up until the point at which the download script is triggered, it is in fact virus free.

And no, this is not a fluke incident, or a bad download, etc. I downloaded "FileMenuTools-setup.exe" directly from the authors site.

This is without doubt, a deliberate and malicious act of Lopesoft to harm users...

Oh, but wait. The CNET editors should catch-on... Right?
CNET Editors' Rating:***** Five stars? Did the editors even install this product? And if so, how messed up are the editors machines that they didn't notice the problem?

Summary

BAN LOPESOFT. BLACKLIST THEIR SITE, AND THEIR PRODUCTS! INSTALLATION OF THIS PRODUCT WILL NEGATIVELY EFFECT YOU, YOU'VE BEEN WARNED!

"Spyware disguised as something useful"

May 09, 2013  |  By hewsterbob

 |  Version: FileMenu Tools 6.4

Pros

The actual program can be useful if you get rid of all the other crap it installs. Have an older version of this on another computer and use it fairly often.

Cons

It aggressively hijacks your browsers (all) with redirecters and who knows what else. Very difficult to get rid of. On install it does have option to not install this stuff- which is apparently entirely ignores.

Summary

STAY AWAY!!!
