Lammer Context Menu stands apart from the context menu-enhancing crowd with some pretty neat features to improve your Windows Explorer experience.

Lammer's tools can be fairly advanced, but that shouldn't scare off novice users. Selection by type, for highlighting files with the same extension, is one of the easiest-to-use power options in Lammer, and many of the others include additional options menus. Batch rename, for renaming multiple files at once, can add sequential numbers to files or insert text in the middle of a name. The search-and-replace feature is equally robust. Note that certain obscure functions, such as the File Operations option under the Search and Replace actions window, haven't yet been turned on.

The most robust tool in the Lammer box is the Path Operations tool. The window that opens from Path Operations lets you Move, Copy, Delete, List, and Change attributes on an impressive scale. You can target files and folders with content, or empty folders, keep relative paths, filter by attributes, and save templates for repetitive actions.

Other excellent features in Lammer include Copy Path, iPhone PNG for compressing and decompressing images for iPhones, opening a command prompt, digitally signing files, opening a file in Notepad, and calculating a file's checksum.

Lammer Context Menu works on XP, Vista, and Windows 7, and is compatible with 64-bit as well as 32-bit editions. If you've got a favorite context menu customizer for Windows Explorer, tell me in the comments below.
