revise, you mean they are gone?
try a repair
lick Start, click Run, and then in the Open box, type the following command, and then click OK:

rundll32 setupwbv.dll,IE6Maintenance "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\Setup\SETUP.EXE" /g "C:\WINDOWS\IE Uninstall Log.Txt"

NOTE: This command is case sensitive.

you could also try a system restore
start-->programs-->accessories-->system tools-->system restore

also delete your temp internet files

Dear Steven,

Thank you for your response, but no, nothing has been deleted.

I have Internet Explorer v. 6.0.  On a brower page (I use Internet Explorer version 6.0), when one right-clicks any image, a menu pops up, starting with the command, "Open Link.  Open Window.  Save Target As.  Print Target.  Show Picture.  Save Picture As.  Email Picture... Print Picture..." etc.

I would like to know how to add, delete and/or rename these commands.  I cannot find it in the tutorials and nobody has posted a question similar to this.

I truly would appreciate any help.  Thank you very much!

This is a utility that allows you to modify the context menu you are talking about when you right click.

Actaully I don't think you can. That Context Editor is a cool program but I don't think it deals with IE though. At least I haven't figured out how to use it to modify the popup menu in IE.

Actually Crazy One is right, but I did some searching and I did found a website that shows how to add items to the IE context menu.  You need to know some JavaScript and understand the Win Reg.  I am testing it out right now.

Check it out

Good Luck and keep us posted

Cool nice find CeLLuS it works. A bit of a pain but it does work. Way to go.

I would advise against, namely because IE has so many bugs and bug fixes you have to update for, so maintaining some manual adjustments for it could be rather problematic. Surely there's something else worth the valuable time.

btw, what's this got to do with storage?
