    Customise File Explorer Dropdown Menu?

    Is it possible to rearrange the content of the File Explorer Dropdown Menu?

    I would like to move rename farther away from delete as I sometimes click too quickly and inadvertently delete files.

    please check if there are too many options under these registries:

    If so, you can delete some unwanted items to clear the context menu.

    there is an application somebody wrote to change your context menu graphically and easy to use.. not have to go into the registry and all that.. for the life-of-me i can't remember the name! maybe someone else can..

    shell extension? maybe?

    google "change context menu" or "add scan with context menu"

Is it possible to customise the Windows X menu?
This post from another thread had me wondering - the WinX folder holds some more Group folders which in turn hold shortcuts. Is it possible to customise what appears from the Windows-X shortcut by creating extra shortcuts into this folder? Or would it wreck my user configuration!?
