Right Click Context Menu Adder

Developer's Description

Tool to add items to the Right Click Context Menu on Windows 7. Free and portable utility "Right Click Context Menu Adder" which allows you to add your favorite application shortcut in Windows 7 Desktop context menu without modifying Windows Registry. You just need to run the free tool and either type the desired program path or browse and select its EXE file. You can also select an icon for the shortcut which is optional. You can select the same EXE file for the icon as well. The utility will not show preview of the icon if you select EXE or DLL file but it'll apply the icon successfully. You can also set the position of the shortcut in context menu.

If you want to make the shortcut hidden and show when you press "SHIFT" key while right-click on Desktop, enable the option "Show only when SHIFT key is pressed". At last give a desired name to the shortcut and click on "Add to Context Menu" button. It'll show "Added!" message in statusbar. If you want to remove the shortcut from Desktop context menu, go to "Remove entries from menu" tab, select the shortcut and click on "Remove" button. You can also change a few settings of the app using "Settings" tab.
