i'd like to see all the features that available in rjh extensions.
i really love rjh extensions, but it doesnt work in xp, it wont release its' dll or handles or something, that cause folders in use all the time and undeleteable.
If you find a good solution and become attached to it, the solution may become your next problem.

I use Context Edit and it does everything I've ever wanted to do to my context menu. Remove unwanted entries, add new filetypes and special functions for certain filetypes, etc. I can't remember where I got it, apparently pcmag wants money for it.

I agree 100%. PCmags Context Edit is the best!!!

Wow, I just noticed this topic was started half a year ago...

All that time and not even a beta was released? Or at least some screenshots of what's to come? Anything?? :tellme:

I wanna see this application come out soon, it sounds pretty good.

we've actually been working on cmc a lot off an on.
and i am ABOUT to release a beta of Launch Bar Commander any day now.
(Launch Bar Commander is the precursor to context menu commander sharing the same core code, and will be one of at least 2 and possibly 3 or 4 apps that we release build on the same engine).  :Thmbsup:

One of my "must have" context menu tools is File Targets by Moon Software.  http://www.moonsoftware.com/freeware.asp  Here is their description:
Quote
FileTargets is a shell context menu extension that adds a sub-menu with all your favorite folder names to the context-menu of all files and folders in your system so you can copy/move selected files to pre-defined, most used folders with the click of a mouse. FileTargets menu is similar to the standard SendTo menu but is much more advanced since it allows you to create subgroups, automatically add new folders, copy file path names and much more.
I formerly used the sendto toys, but I found that it takes a lot more time to load that menu than file targets, and that file targets is generally easier to work with.

I just found out Stardock's Right Click. Although not free, I think it's also worth mentioning.

yes, stardock's right click is very close in functionality to context menu commander.

I'm a big fan of the perhaps-abandonware "rcFTP" program -- it's a tiny one-way ftp program designed to integrate into the right click menu.  First thing you do with it is plug in your ftp server login info and add folders you'll want to send files to on those servers.  Once that's setup, uploading a file is as simple as right click -> send to -> rcFTP -- then you select the server and folder you want from the dropdowns and send it.  Simple on the fly ftp.

Some plugins I'd like to see...

- "read only" attribute remover (like CROA; http://davidcrowell.com/Croa.aspx)

- "context menu editor" (like mmm+, already mentioned several times)

- "right-click FTP upload (mentioned by allen. Another right-click FTP uploader is csbFTP; http://www.toffi-net...P-support/eindex.php)

There are 2 things that I'd love to add to my explorer context menu:

- A folders submenu with all my favorite folders that would allow me to navigate to them with a simple right click (and it should be able to reuse any open explorer window if I want it to)
- A "Create folder" button (as the windows "New>" submenu is sooo slow!!!).

A tool that adds those two (and perhaps "command promt here" although there is already a Microsoft PowerToy that does that) woul be perfect!

P.S.- When is the first release of this program expected?
The thing that I'd like the most wou

the 2 things you requested will be in context menu commander for sure.

release date is a bit hard to estimate - i've been working very hard on the shared infrastructure that will be used in a series of programs inlcuding contextmenu commander, and the first app to use this will be launch bar commander and it looks like farr 2.  contextmenu commander is a joint project with another programmer so it's a bit harder to give a real date.  However, a good deal of the code is already written and working, so it's not vaporware, just a matter of scheduling :)

I too am very much looking forward to an all-in-one solution like this, but I have to think at some point something like this could easily start to get bloated down with features (which could be an issue for a program that runs all the time in the background), so my question is, how much of a priority is keeping memory consumption to a low going to be? ;)

i really look forward to writing about context menu commander when it comes out..
basically ive been spending a lot of time making a really nice friendly and very powerful infrastructure for letting users design custom hierarhical menus and stuff, which would be useful for designing custom context menus, launch bars, and more.  i'm really very proud of it and i plan to be using it in several programs.

but the good news is that the code is specifically designed so that a very lightweight windows dll will be used to handle the context menu stuff.  in fact because of the way the cmc is being designed it will be incredibly light on resource usage :)

PESX - THE shellextension
for Windows 95 and Windows NT 4.0 / Windows 2000 / WIndows XP

lets you analyze your Applications and DLLs dependencies.
Now includes 16 Bit (NE) support !


Right click on a DLL or EXE File, select Properties,
a new page titled 'dependencies' is displayed.
You can see all directly or indirectly needed DLLs displayed
either in a tree view or in a list view.

See dependencies of your modules as tree view or flat as list,
easily find all Files that make your application run, quick jump to
the listed entries or copy information to the clipboard.


It's like an "Dependcy Walker" in your file preferences box.

IE Booster offers tools to extend Internet Explorer, but the version which was free is no longer available on the website.  It helps you to dig into the technology behind a website, to analyze the HTML and script code, to copy content and to use online tools to analyze a webpage.  :(

As a webmaster, I use it to analyze errors in code snippets.  You can right click, show partial source and see exactly what you've highlighted.

I have an idea for this one...convert to .jpg...or .bmp...or png...or whatever.

I have need for all 3...and on the context menu would save a lot of time...as long as the compression for jpg is very light. I don't want picture quality compromised too much.

Also converting to 256 color .bmp would save me time with making icons.

And rather than replacing the current file, make sure it creates a new file.

IE Booster was replaced by SiteInspector which was moved to freeware recently ...

http://www.paessler.com/psi

I suspect the move to freeware will mean suspension of development (they were already running down updates for Firefox when it was still commercial) but it does the job.

Note you really have to prune the number of context menu items visible in Internet Explorer otherwise it almost fill sthe maximum number of slots in that menu (it is a known problem with IE, but PSI doesn't help the situation by adding loads of entries). Check the preferences to decide which options you want included.

Firefox has taught me tab-browsing. And with IE7 being for XP and Vista only, I and my Win2K would shure like IE6 to able to "Open in new window blur" (or what the English term might be, saying 'out of focus') from the right-click menu, instead of always stealing focus.

IrfanConverter.GIF
This right-click-at-picturefile menu was made with the free IrfanView and a free DLL from BAxBEx.
Most usable!

http://www.baxbex.com/products.html - scroll all down

Sadly, the IrfanView forum has just lost their server, and will be down for some weeks.
