If you tell Clipboard H+S to ignore your browser (where you are pasting all kinds of passwords and user names) it then ignores everything you copy or paste into your browser beyond user names and passwords - this is not a solution.  A simple application password required to start Clipboard H+S would be adequate in keeping most snoops out - having no security lets anyone in.

Have a look at "Simplest way to add a command to Explorer's shell menu" thread and "Create a containing folder by right clicking on a file" thread for ideas.

Well...thank-you very-much (Elvis style).  You want me actually figure this out for myself?!  :-\
While I really appreciate the help, I just can't be bothered with doing the work to make...what would turn out to be a disaster-piece in my all-thumbs hands.


I need a solution from someone experienced who would deliver it to my doorstep!  That is why I am here.


I see a lot of programs I have installed have added context menu selections to context menus that open when you right-click in most text programs and text/message boxes in a browser.  If I knew how to do this I would.  I am looking for someone to give me the solution directly so I can apply it to my systems.  I have looked everywhere I can think of.  Once upon a time I saw a context menu addition that would add three selections to the right-click context menu of text programs.  The selections were: Date, Time, and Date and Time.  I can't find it out there anymore.  This seems to be a simple necessity and I know it has been done more than once before, but damned if I can locate it.   :(

I type now` and PhraseExpress expands it to today's date like this -> 04/27/2008

I have no idea what you are talking about.  I am a lousy programmer, that is why I am here!   ;D

If it isn't hard why do you need help?

Sorry but since most right click context menus are specific to the application they pop up in how can you add an option to all of them globally.

It is easy to do in some applications but for others/most it would mean recoding the application or at the very least writing some sort of macro within programs that support macros (such as MS Office) to add the functionality ???

Bit of a rude response to someone who was trying to help you! Can you keep comments civil around here please.

We were referring to hard as in hard-coded, and no, it is not hard-coded.  No rudeness implied.  :)



Have you tried a Google search for context menu add item
You may have to do a registry hack though .

Yes, rather thoroghly.  Thanks.  :)


No the context menu is not hard and thank you for your response.

Please refrain from commenting if you cannot be of any aid in giving me a solution for my idea.  I know exactly what I want, and I don't want anything different.  I have a macro keyboard, I can program a key to insert the date - I don't want that.  I want to insert the date with the mouse, from a context menu, wherever text would be input.  Thanks for previous suggestions but it is like trying to sell me a bicycle when what I am looking for is a car.   :)


I meant right-click!


I would like this built into the left-click context menu of most places you would enter text, mouse controlled.  I also only want the date, since time would be irrelevant where I would use it, in all time zones.  Thanks for the response!


Simply to be able to insert the system date from any/most Windows context menu (global).
