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.
P.S. This is the first time I use the bolding in EE.>)
P.S.S. And when I press on the colon on my keyboard for a smiley while formatting is enabled, it looks like > char. Maybe, I should report this to Bug and fixes section.
