Hi there;

How can I change the order of right click context menu items in Windows 7 and Windows XP? Is it possible? How?

As in the shot, I want to change the order as given.

Best regards.

Hi;

So in my case, which one should I use?
ShellMenuView or ShellExView or both?

Best regards.

it depends on where that context lives....

ShellMenuView is a small utility that display the list of static menu items that appeared in the context menu when you right-click a file/folder on Windows Explorer, and allows you to easily disable unwanted menu items.

ShellMenu is for context that lives when you right click on a file or folder in the windows explorer

ShellExView utility displays the details of shell extensions (DLLs) installed on your computer, and allows you to easily disable and enable each shell extension.

shellexview disables the dlls that make the context or run the context on those menus...

so you can disable those programs all the way if you want from the menus.

I'm sorry I made a mistake those programs won't allow you to sort the context menus.

I did find this article that sort of explains what you're trying to do...it will take some hacking it looks like.

hmm, I think there is confusion here, those 2 seems valid to me. My aim is "not" to change the order of the right click context menu "by clicking New", but only "right click any text file", txt file, in your desktop and that context menu is what I am talking. So, are those 2 valid with this clarification?

Regards.
