Desktop context menu extension

Hi

I want to extend the context menu (aka shortcut menu, the right click popup) but just for the desktop and to insert an entry after Arrange Icons |Auto Arrange (ie into a submenu).

Code would be nice <g>

Adding your code to the windows shell is not as easy as it seems.

If you only want to open one file, you can easily add a right-click menu item (instead of open) by creating some registry keys. However, you even want to go further...

I myself have never ventured in this field. Some time ago, I searched for a free component that would do just what you ask, but at the time did not find a suitable free component.

However, now i do a search at torry and maybe the following component could help you out (i'm not sure whether it's able to do just what you ask though):

The component is called TShellCommand Interface.

I just read the explanation, maybe it's not suited to your needs, though.

If this won't work, the following SHAREWARE component is your best bet:

ShellPlus

Just see the site for more info. Judging from the screenshots, it's a nice useful component. Sadly it's not free, and again, I'm not sure whether it's capable of placing the menuitems in the desktop menu (especially on that place you ask for)...
