    There is a utility which purports to allow one to change right-click context menu; however, the display of the available edits are so geeky that I cannot recommend the utility unless:
    -- one has routine current recent restorable backups on trusted external media
    -- one has a great sense of patience and humor while "hacking" one's own Windows
    Let me know if you're still interested.
    BTW, Time as we know it does not exist in discussion boards; There are no minutes, no hours, no days.

    The utility is: Context Menu Control Freak 101; a zip file back when I got it. My previous post still applies -- before using such utility.
