Context Menu Editor 1.1

Add / delete application shortcuts
Context Menu Editor is a very lightweight Windows freebie that does exactly the thing mentioned in the title: it allows you to edit the Context Menu and add new entries or delete the existing ones.

Developed to perform such a simple task, Context Menu Editor relies on a rather dull interface, with a tabbed layout that gives you access to the main sides of the app.

It lets you add a link to an application or command with minimum details, while removing an existing entry takes just one second.

First of all, if you wish to add a shortcut to an app or command you are required to input path, icon and text, while links to websites need URLs, icons and texts.

The “Remove” screen makes everything even easier to use. To delete an entry, simple hit the “Delete” key on the keyboard or right-click it and press the “Delete” option, while Context Menu Editor shows information such as name, command and extended status.

As you can see, Context Menu Editor is quite easy to use and another good thing about it is that it’s fully portable, which means that you don’t even need to install it. All modifications are saved to the registry, so you can even uninstall the program after making the changes.

Overall, Context Menu Editor is clearly a very interesting product and if you can get past the rather boring interface, you shall discover a set of very handy features. Administrator privileges are obviously needed on Windows 7 machines.
