1-abc.net Right Click Configurator is a useful utility that can help you easily edit the system context menu, by adding or removing entries from the list. If your last Windows installation was a long time ago and you installed and uninstalled several products since then, you probably recognized that sometimes you have much more right click entries and features than you need. Configuring these entries can now be done easily with 1-abc.net Right Click Configurator. The easy-to-use interface allows you to see all these connections to Windows features and external programs.

De-activating such an entry is just one click away. You can also modify or remove it completely, which should be done with the highest caution, of course.

Furthermore, you can add your personal right click entries by typing a name for it and selecting the path to an executable file you want to start from. You can also add any customized command line that Windows would understand in the "Start"-"Run" dialog.

Hi, Bernard (Comment 34). Make sure you have the latest version of CCleaner. In the "Start-Up" section, you want the tab furthest to the right, "Context Menu."

CCleaner > left hand side menu>tools>sub-menu-start-up> see under the tab context menu in the right side window. But not ALL items are seen in CCleaner as pointed out earlier.

This is the best context menu editor I've used as you see EVERY context menu item. CCleaner allows some to stay hidden. The problem is, it offers an option to activate or deactivate. Make 2 clear options as at 1st it appeared you could not deactivate. Also, the window can only be small or full size, no intermediate sizes. Other than that, excellent.

@Marius (#8)
The difference between a giveaway (here) and a free app is simple. When you have to re-install your computer, a free app can be re-installed. The same goes for the special(?) occasions where files get infected, damaged or become otherwise unusable. Giveaways on the other hand are limited to today, so you have to buy the software instead of simply re-installing it. Of course there are other methods for obtaining paid software, but that would make you run illegal software, which of course is something we don't want to.
So a big "thanks" to Giovanni for the tons of links to free alternatives (even though I only look through things that might be useful for me).

Of course... those are just my 2 cents ;-)

#3 I think most votes are based on whether they are interested or not in what the software does, i.e. "I don't care about editing my right-click menu" or "I don't need this", so they vote it down. It's primarily a popularity contest, not an assessment of how well it does or doesn't work. No doubt some people will now post that they don't vote that way, but I'm quite sure most do. The comments are much more valid than the thumbs up/down vote -- at least the ones from people who have actually installed and tried using it.

RE: 1, 13. I was going to install LopeSoft as I prefer to use freeware that can be reinstalled if I purchase a new computer. But during the installation I saw that its installer used a "monitizer" which in the user agreement said it was going to hijack my browser home page, change my search engine and do some other things. At least they overtly warned you that they were going to do that. I aborted the installation.

Thanks to 1-abcnet and GOTD for letting us try this software for free.
Downloaded, installed, got the serial key and activated the software.

Tested it.
Result: Below average. Will uninstall immediately after leaving this comment in GOTD forum. I will not want this even if it is freeware.

Others already pointed out the inability to increase the window size, causing difficulty in reading the details of the context menu item.

I observe this [unchangeable window size] is a SOP of 1-abcnet software. Obviously their in-house programmers or outsourced subcontracted software coders have adopted a standard template. Without knowing or caring that each software needs its own special requirements. This is indicative of poor quality coding or incompetent software project management at a higher level.

The software identified 130 items ready for my right click context menu. Wrong. Actually I have much more than that. Correctly identified by Nirsoft's portable freeware ShellEx and ShellMenuView.

To its credit, the software seems to have discovered some left over context menu items from software that I had previously un-installed. But when I tried to remove the item as per its menu, the Richt Click Configurator was unable to do so.

The attempt to provide a scroll down list of standard actions is mis-guided. Because they pertain to common standard windows file management actions. But some of us use some pretty specialised software. Those common Windows actions are quite useless for the context menu of these special software.

@ # 19 Julia Your obviously not familiar with who is who here . People like Karl and Giovanni and others do not get paid to test thoroughly each product that is posted on here . They install on their own machines run some tests and offer their OPINIONS ! I have found that the advice from others on this site is what makes it what it is And thanks to GAOTD without their tireless effort would not bring useful software for us to try . I for one like to read the opinions of others who have tested it read up a little on the software and then determine if i would need such a product . I myself like the free alternatives that others post on here . They took the time and effort to look and post links .

Contrary to what has been said in a previous comment the small window can be resized

You are right, it can be resized to full screen, but not with the resize corner. This was, what I checked. I have to be more carefully in the future.

Way too many Context Menu editors out there and I realize Gotd needs to offer something. I can list a ton of stuff you can offer, but I doubt the authors of their fine software will give it away free. Afterall, this is a CAPITALIST nation and I hope it stays this way. I would gladly PAY FOR FINE SOFTWARE, as I have always done.

So maybe GOTD needs to offer half-price GREAT SOFTWARE offerings like other sites do.

Was hoping to use this program to enable some right-click menu options in Windows 7 Home Premium's native Spider Solitaire game (e.g. "H" = help, "Control-Z" = undo) but was clueless on how to accomplish such. From a previous comment, I wonder if the program even works on this system. Anyone know if such is possible without knowing the source code of this MS game?

The daily reviews submitted by Karl are a public disservice. They invariably consist of empty observations, such whether or not the developer has published a street address on their website, together with other pointless, trivial rambling. Today's is one of the worst. It's infuriating that this perfectly good giveaway is being trashed by an attention-seeking noob who is then enthusiastically applauded by others.

It doesn't appear to allow you to set up right-click options on specific file types, such as a Read on .txt files which would open a specific program to view the file.

While Karl found some things not to like, I think perhaps many people think there are far too many apps & web pages dedicated to working with the context menu -- Google edit context menu & you'll get almost 18mill hits, like this article from How-To Geek http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/how-to-clean-up-your-messy-windows-context-menu/

It's very shamefull to have this negative results for such a suppose to be easy program !!
But any way I think most of you guys if not all have the famous CCLEANER so why not using it for this same purpose ? I have the full version but I know even with it's free version has this function plus many more. David Wilson seems to need this function so use the user friendly program ccleaner .

The best GUI I've seen that allows editing existing context menu entries.
However, too many issues.

Ideas:
Add 'Open in regedit'
Search for entry using (e.g.) google
Open properties sheet for file in context entry
Solve the various problems.

Problems:

1. Print out:
Unusually, offers print out of rt click entries
But unexpectedly, cancelling this => a dialogue box
"Add a new entry to your right click menu. OK"

Clicking OK doesn't apparently do anything. I wouldn't expect this dialogue box here.

2. Expert pdf - in Send to- listed as "Windows default feature, cannot be edited"
Really? Expert pdf is a 3rd party program.

3. Edit Entry
Why is the 'Edit Entry' menu button greyed out for some entries?
(Rt click on item listed in GUI, edit entry opens a dialogue box IF the Edit Entry menu button isn't greyed out-

which is consistent).
** Where editing an entry is NOT possible, the 'Edit Entry' option on right clicking it shouldn't be shown.

4. Check Command Line- doesn't validate the command.
Where an entry can be edited, there is a "Check Command Line" button.
Sounds a good idea..what does it achieve?

I tried changing a couple of characters of VirusTotalUpload2.exe.
"Check Command Line" didn't report any errors.
I hit OK to accept the change, and repeated the test.
Again, "Check Command Line" didn't report any errors.
So what does this check? It doesn't seem to check the validity of the command.

5. Experiment with deactivation.
I had mp3tag shown as a folder context menu entry. I don't want this showing for all folder context menus.
De-activate entry didn't do anything.
Remove Entry was greyed out.

** This works if the program is run as admin (Win 8.1).
So this requirement needs to be handled appropriately.
(E.g. Autoruns restarts with prompt if you attempt an operation that requires admin. permission)

Wow this program restored my context menu back.I had a couple of nagging context menu entries (compress to KGB archive,load to clipboard,etc) on my windows 7 Ultimate since last year.Even after uninstalling these programs and using many freeware tools,none of them worked for me. But this one did the job for me :) Registration was easy using a disposable email and I received my key almost instantly.

Definitely a keeper and price is free. Does what its designed for.Like the cool blue interface in summers.

This program does what it says, although I feel like if I don't want something on my right click bar then I probably don't need the program that adds that, so if I uninstall that program, it's gone. Thank you though.

@Giovanni, what would you like to see? I feel like there's a free app for everything that has a pay version out there, after all, you post the free apps whenever something is given here. I really don't know what could someone program to satisfy the "different kinds of apps" criteria, and I'd really like to hear. In my opinion, we've had everything here.

Around the houses registration procedure with e-mails going back and forth, a bit hard to fathom why this should be necessary.
Contrary to what has been said in a previous comment the small window can be resized, certainly in XP, to a maximum rendering long entries fully visible.
Regarding the right click problem; I only experienced this problem with the first entry in the list, this can easily happen in languages such as Delphi and trips many programmers up.
A program I'm going to keep and experiment with as it could be useful.

This looked like the program I was waiting for - but regrettably it DOES NOT WORK on my system: Windows 7 Home Premium. After a rather clunky registration, I ran it. It gave me a list of the 140 (!) right-click context menu entries, and offered the options

Remove Entry
De-Activate Entry
Edit Entry
Add Entry

I tried "De-Activate Entry" first. All this did was to make the program hang up. I restarted, and tried "Remove Entry." This seemed to work better - but after removing one entry, the program hung again. I then tried to remove more than one entry at a time - the program crashed completely.

I wish this program worked .... but as it is, on a scale of one to ten, I give it a zero.

Installed and registered (checked eMail) without problems on a WIN 8.1 Pro 64 bit system.

A young (2005) German Company with name and address and yes, with tax number, too... (*)

A small not resizable window opens with the existing entries in the right click menu. That's bad, because with longer path you'll see :

DLL:C:\Program(86)\TheCompanyName\Pro...

Even, if this should be version 6, the rightclick of the rightclick configurator doesn't work as it should! That's bad, too...

On a lot of entries (in my case entries for "file only") the right click on the entry gives me the choice between "add entry", "edit entry", "activate" and others. But the "edit entry" right click does not do anything. You have to push the "edit entry" key below.

I expect from a "right click" software, that at least the right click is working ;-)

The next problem is the activate/deactivate entry. With longer path, you don't see the (de-activated). It is hidden behind the ...

Too much errors for a short test. Sorry, this is not version 6, but 0.6!

Basically a good program, if you can live with a not finished program, you can use it. In my case, I prefer programs which are working flawlessly from the start to the end.

(*) If I buy software or products from a company over the I-Net, I want to know, who is my contract partner. That simple.
