Context menu can also be called as right-click menus . Context menu has different actions , listed in a particular order . The options available depend upon the file type and the installed applications for the file type.

In this tutorial , We explain how you can configure you own context menu or modify the default context menu for a given file type. Lets say, when you right click on a MP3 file, you will see the following context menu.

Just as an example, we will now try to modify this context menu. We will put “Play” as the second option , and “Add to Windows Media Player list” as first.

– Unzip the package , and open Default Programs Editor.exe.

– Take a backup of your registry.
