Hi, I'm using Windows 8.1 x64 and I'd like to add to the MAIN menu of context menu (just right-clicking) the options to create a New Folder and a New Text Document. Right now I have to go to the "New" option and then select Folder or Text Document.

Thanks!

Thanks a lot. Now I have 3 questions:

1. I've put a shortcut of "Notepad" in the right-click menu of the desktop, and it appears below "Paste" and "Paste shortcut". Nevertheless, when I'm in a folder, that option doesn't appear, neither "Personalize", "Screen res." and all that stuff. How can I put that option ALSO when I'm in a folder?

2. I don't know how to add a "CREATE a folder", because what you posted is how to add shortcuts. I'd like to add a "New Folder" option below the shortcut of the Notepad I've just created.

3. The same as point 2, but with CREATE a txt. What I've done is to add a shortcut of Notepad, but I wanna add an option to create a txt document directly.

THANKS!

I can only show you the desktop right click menu & the Explorer menu:

That's the best I can do. :(

I'm not crazy about third party software but Context Menu Tuner from winaero.com is pretty resourceful for a standalone utility.

Yeah, that picture David Bailey put is what I want: the two items in red to be shown right in the main menu, below "New" or something like that, not in the "New" submenu.

I've tried that software but I can't do anything like this with it. Or I don't know how to use it, I gave it a try and didn't understand how to make possible this 2 features using it. I've tried also others, no luck. That's why I'm asking this in the forum.

I forgot point 4:

4. I've been able to create a shortcut to a program in the main manu. In .mkv files, in the right-click menu I've added a shorcut to mkvmerge, a .mkv editor. By default, VLC player opens .mkv files. Well, when I right-click a .mkv file and select the new option I added, the mkvmerge shortcut, a popup menu appears and asks me if I wanna set mkvmerge the default program to open .mkv files. I tick NO, and then I click to open, and mkvmerge opens it. So, it takes even more time open a .mkv using the new shortcut I added than use the "Open with..." option and click in "mkvmerge", WHICH opens the .mkv directly, without asking anything, and VLC still is the default program. So...

How can I add a shortcut to the right-click menu without it asks me everytime I click on it if I wanna make it default program? (Basically, I have in the main right-click menu "Play with VLC" and "Add to VLC playlist", and I wanna add there "Open with mkvmerge", without asking me if I wanna change the default program)

Wow, nice dude!

For sure I didn't try thay one. I tried another with almost identical name, so I thought yours was the same I tried. Thanks a lot, been searching for this for a huge while. :D

So I got almost everything:

1. I'm still not able to create a txt, like when you go "New/Text Document". What I've added with the program is a shortcut. I need exactly that, but with the funcion of the "New/Text Document", I mean, create in the folder I am a text document.

2. Now I've added mkvmerge to the right-click menu, but it's just another shortcut, so when I right click a .mkv file and click mkvmerge shortcut I added with this program, it just opens the program, without adding the .mkv I selected.

1. Open 'Context Menu Tuner':

2. Not sure what you're aiming for with the mkv thing. If you install VLC Media Player, you can set it to open mkv files by default.

Hope this was helpful. :)

Thanks. Well, the first point you wrote is what I have right now. It's really usefull, EXCEPT when you have to save it.

For example, I'm in a C: sub-sub-sub-sub-folder, let's say "C/ProgramSett/Wind/Syst32/Icons/Image". When I right-click there and click that option you are talking about "New Text Document", the NOTEPAD is opened, I can write there whatever I want, and then when I wanna save it, I have to go to the folder I am, because by default it prompts to save it in MYDOCUMENT. So I have to select C, then all the folders.

NEVERTHELESS, if I right-click and go to "New"/"Text Document", it CREATES a txt in the folder directly, and you write the name of the txt, and the you can open it an write there. So this option automatically saves the txt in the folder. THIS is what I want, not a shortcut to NOTEPAD, cause I can do that adding NOTEPAD to the toolbar/taskbar, or a quick-shortcut next to the start menu icon.

Point 2 exactly the same. I don't want shortcuts to programs, I want in the main menu of the right-click menu an option that does EXACTLY the same function as "Open with.../mkvmerge", which opens the program and loads the file I selected.

Thanks guys, hope now you understand completely what I want.
