if anyone feels up for it, i'd love some help collecting links to and lists of existing tiny little right-click context menu tools, and the functions they provide.
I've been looking for such a program for a long time, so here you have a list of some of them that I have tried (you must know most -if not all- of them, but just in case):
Context Menu Editor http://www.bartdart.com/
ShellMenu View http://www.nirsoft.n...shell_menu_view.html
Fast Explorer http://thesoftpro.tr...wnloads/fe/index.htm
File Manu Tools http://www.lopesoft.com/
Context Edit http://www.ramlende.com/utilities.html
CMenu Extender http://www.geocities...er_inc/download.html
Context Magic http://www.contextma....com/menu-extension/
Perfect Menu http://www.pitrinec.com/pmeindex.htm
Context Menu Control Freak & Mmm http://www.hace.us-inc.com/
jv16 PowerTools http://www.jv16.org/
IE Toolbar Manager http://www.westbyte.com/ietool/
Then you have these two web sites that deal with the subject:http://www.msfn.org/....php?showtopic=52524http://www.codeproject.com/shell/
and also i'd love to get suggestions for right click context menu tools that you'd like to see.
None of the above do ALL what they portend to do, but where I find a real good Context Menu Commander missing is in regards to Internet Explorer. jv16 allows you to delete certain entries and IE Toolbar Manager to delete and to add, but the real problem is, IMO, that neither gives you the "power to actually tame it".
Let me try to explain: you install a program (helper, BHO) and it's entries appear in the Context Menu. Then you install another one and in too many cases it "bullies out" the previous entries. You go check the Registry and they are all there, but not all of them appear in the Context Menu. Using the above mentioned programs you may delete one and see if it allows another one, but (1) once deleted you can't get it back unless you reinstall and (2) there's no way to be sure of which one will show up. If you then install another program the problem gets worse.
My apologies for the length of this post, but this is an issue I am most interested in. I have asked around even in one paid support service forum and nobody has been able to come up with an answer: how to take control of the IE Context Menu and force it to show the entries you want and hide those you don't.
So I'd be very very happy if the program you are thinking of would approach this problem. My expertise is nil and I don't know if it's possible. If it is, I hope you consider my suggestion. AFAIK, it would be a first (I am not sure about IE Toolbar Manager ...it's Help File is useless to a non-tech person).
My English is rather limited, but I hope the idea is clear.
Thank you for reading this far
