Context menus, often called pop-up menus, keep functionality high and clutter low in operating systems like Windows. RBSoft's Right Click Enhancer bundles five free tools for customizing context menus. My Computer Manager adds nondeleting files or folders to My Computer or the Control Panel, while Right Click Tweaker adds up to 10 entries to context menus. Send To Manager let us add new destinations to the Send To command, and Right Click Shortcuts Creator adds shortcuts to files and folders to context menus. The Right Click Cascading Menu Creator is a little bit more sophisticated than the other tools. Using it, we were able to add entire cascading submenus to our right-click menus.

Right Click Enhancer's main interface is a simple square box with five rectangular buttons accessing its menu of tools, which share similarly basic pop-up interfaces and wizardlike functionality. We started with the Right Click Tweaker, which offers 10 check boxes. We opted to add Encrypt, Administrator Command Prompt, System Configuration Utility, God Mode, and Problem Step Recorder to our Windows 7 menus. We applied the tweaks, right-clicked the desktop, and selected System Configuration Utility, which opened msconfig. Clicking God Mode opened that ultrahandy Win7/Vista feature, and so on. Next we tried the Right Clicks Shortcuts Creator, successfully adding shortcuts to various folders and files to menus. My Computer Manager and Send To Manager were also simple but effective in operation. The Right Click Cascading Menu Creator involves adding and naming a new menu, including an option to browse to and add a specific icon, to a dual-screen dialog. We clicked Add Cascading Menu and right-clicked our new menu to add or remove files or folders. When we opened the context menu, our new menus and their contents were in place.

These simple tools offer little in the way of options, and the only real help is an online tutorial. They proved much more useful and effective than we guessed. Right Click Enhancer proved a great little bundle that can customize and personalize Windows in ways few other tools can match.
