The right click menu in Windows is a mighty handy feature that lets us access the commands we use most often in a jiffy. However, each of us have the need for different types of commands and since Windows doesn’t offer the option to add commands to the right-click context menu in an easy fashion, we end up doing a lot of research online and manually adding different commands for each item we want to include in the contextual menu.
For instance, You may have previously used Windows freeware programs to install shortcuts to the right-click context menu such as to shut down or restart your Windows 8 PC, send documents to Dropbox, move or copy files and folders to other lo. You would have noticed that each of these tutorials requires you to follow a number of steps to include each item individually.
I recently discovered a tool called Easy Context Menu that lets you add multiple commands to the right-click context menu for the Desktop, My Computer, Drives, File and Folders. In this article, I’ll show you how you can easily get quick access to your most wanted commands using Easy Context Menu for Windows.
Installing Right Click Menu Commands in Easy Context Menu
1. Download the freeware from here.
NOTE: You have both the x86 and 64-bit versions so pick one that is appropriate for your PC. To know which version of Windows your PC is running, in Windows 8, right-click the Start button and choose System and check under System Type. If you are using Windows 7, right-click the Start button and choose Properties. Then search for System Type to find the relevant information.
2. Extract the zip file and double-click to run the appropriate EXE file.
3. The Easy Context menu window will be displayed showing the various context menus available for the Desktop, My Computer, Drives, Folder, Files, Sub Menu – System Tools and Turn Off Options.
4. Select the various commands you want and then click the Apply Changes button (mouse with the green + button) at the top of the window. You can also undo the changes by clicking the button right next to it.(the one with the mouse and the red – button.)
Of course, the utility does not include every conceivable shortcut that you can think of, but there’s plenty in there that should make your job a lot easier.
Installation and setup takes very little time and the utility is free to download and use, so do check it out and let us know your thoughts.
