Add custom Paste entries into Windows 7 context menu


 Hi Everyone,

 I have been searching for a way to add custom static "Paste" entries into the standard windows 7 context menu. For example, when i right click i would like to see something like:

Paste "Custom Text 1"
Paste "Custom Text 2"

and so on. I have tried 3rd party apps but they seem like overkill for this simple task. I would like to find a solution native to the OS.

Thanks,

the is no "standard" context-menue.
Context-menues depend on the situation a location where they appear.
Even inside windows-explorer you'll have different context-menues when right-clicking on folders and on files.
So the better solution for your needs will probably be a hotkey-setting where you define system-wide hotkeys the paste the configured text(s) into textfields when pressed.
There a many tools out doing that task for you - we're using a compiled AutoIt-Skript ( http://www.autoitscript.com/site/autoit/ )

Ove

; Main loop
HotKeySet("{LALT}{F10}", "HotkeyOne")
HotKeySet("{LALT}{F11}", "HotkeyTwo")

;;;; Body of program would go here ;;;;
While 1
    Sleep(100)
WEnd
;;;;;;;;


func HotkeyOne()
  Send("Custom Text 1{ENTER}")
endfunc
func HotkeyTwo()
  Send("Custom Text 2{ENTER}")
endfunc

Open in new window

I would like to keep it as a right click, or some kind of mouse functions. My goal is to eliminate having to use the keyboard. The users enter the same 3 or 4 lines or text over and over again so i thought if they could just right click and paste those lines it would save time and some physical space. I will check out autoitscript though. and thanks!
