Editors' review

Right Click Enhancer Portable combines two of our favorite things: context menu enhancements and portable freeware. This simple tool lets you customize the menus that appear when you right-click things in Windows. It adds a variety of menu items, including cascading menus with as many submenus as you need as well as custom items you create and configure. This version is completely portable, running from a USB drive or other portable media without having to be installed. You don't need to restart the application every time you reboot, though; the changes it makes persist until you change them back.

When we opened the extracted program files, we saw that Right Click Enhancer actually bundles several tools: My Computer Manager, New Menu Editor, Right Click Cascading Menu Shortcuts Creator, Right Click Editor, Right Click Enhancer, Right Click Shortcuts Creator, Right Click Tweaker, and Send To Manager. Right Click Enhancer serves as the anchor app; its eight buttons access the various tools as well as the HTML-based Help file.

The most powerful tool in the lineup is the Right Click Editor, which offers a staggering list of items to add. By contrast, the Right Click Tweaker is an ultrasimple tool that lets you add context menu entries by clicking check boxes. We could add Administrator Command Prompt, Encrypt, System Configuration, and even God Mode. We applied our tweaks and right-clicked the desktop. Our changes appeared on the menu that popped up. The Send To Manager is another super-simple dialog-based tool for selecting destinations to add to the cascading Send To menu. As with the other tools, we could easily browse our system for apps and other targets to add to the selection list if we didn't see what we wanted. The My Computer Manager let us add items to both the My Computer and Control panel menus. The other tools had similar functionality; all performed well.

As we noted, rebooting preserved our menu changes, despite the program's portability. This versatile suite of easy-to-use tools lets you put useful items exactly where you need them. Whether you choose the installed or portable versions, we highly recommend Right Click Enhancer.

    "Creating/using submenus requires paid version."

    March 24, 2014   |   By FilthyPazuzu

    Version: Right Click Enhancer Portable 4.1.4

    Pros

    None for version 4.1.4

    Cons

    This "freeware" version (4.1.4) is just a demo now, although the description doesn't say so.

    If you want to create, edit, and use submenus in your right-click menus, you have to buy the $9.99 "professional" version.

    Using right-click submenus is arguably the most useful feature, so the fact that this company has been listing this function in the program's description - for quite a while, apparently - isn't just incorrect, it's deceptive.

    Summary

    I'm very disappointed. The older versions of this program were very good, but for version 4.1.4 you have to pay for the most useful functions.

    The worst part is the feeling of bait-and-switch. They could at least update their description to reflect the truth. It's not just here, either, the same inaccurate description is on every download site.

    At least older version of the application can be found.
