Adding Open Containing Folder to context menu
Posted on 2009-12-18
Running Windows 7, I am using a third-party application for searching for files and folders, instead of Windows Search. This application works well, but it lacks a context menu item to open the containing folder for any particular file which appears in the search results. I need some help to edit the registry to provide for this context menu item.
In the registry hive HKey_Classes_Root/shell/* I have added a new key named OpenContainingFolder and set the default value to Open Containing Folder. Under the newly-added key I have added another new key called Command. However, I don't know what to set for the default value. I tried C:\Windows\explorer.exe %1 but that does not work. Please advise. Thanks!
