Re: Customize context menu in Windows Explorer

When you rightclick either a folder or a file, a customizable context sensitive menu is displayed in Windows Explorer.

Basically, there are 5 types of modifications :-
  1. Add a new entry
  2. Modify an existing entry
  3. Specify the default entry
  4. Re-name an entry
  5. Remove an entry

Users mostly make these modifications via the View --- Options... --- File Types dialog box and it's associated Edit File Types dialog box. By associating EditFlags with a specific file type, it is possible to keep users from making one or more of these modifications.
