You can find the Find... options in the registry at:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\explorer\FindExtensions

I don't know the exact structure and syntaxes, but maybe the above will help.

Hi
its bit more complicated than just adding reg entries.
you need shell extension stuff for this, see more details on the findextensions:

you could use some of the code from the demos\activeX\Shellext\contextenu.pas in your delphi installation.
