    Hello, 

    Is there a possibility of moving the UltraEdit context menu item from the extended context menu to the main one.

      The file operations context menu of Windows 11 is only extendable by either a Universal Windows Platform (UWP) app with an IExplorerCommand interface combined with it's app identity, or a standard desktop application using some Win32 identity wrapper. See also:
      UltraEdit is a Windows desktop application. The developers of UltraEdit must add extra code and register the UltraEdit context menu item different on Windows 11 in comparison to former Windows versions to get the UltraEdit context menu appear in the file operations context menu of Windows 11.

      However, a user can run the following command in a command prompt window or with the Run dialog window opened on pressing Win+R:

      Code: Select all

      reg.exe ADD HKCU\Software\Classes\CLSID\{86ca1aa0-34aa-4e8b-a509-50c905bae2a2}\InprocServer32
      Then a user sign out and sign in must be done to get effective this change in the Windows registry for current user in Windows File Explorer which disables the Windows 11 contextual file operations menu resulting in getting displayed always immediately the extended context menu like in Windows 10 and former Windows versions.

      This registry change can be undone by executing the command line:

      Code: Select all

      reg.exe DELETE HKCU\Software\Classes\CLSID\{86ca1aa0-34aa-4e8b-a509-50c905bae2a2} /f
      The user must sign out and sign in again to get effective this change in the Windows registry for current user.
