    Well, after looking at your exported .reg file, the .reg file from the tutorial did not get merged completely. None of the submenu items got merged.

    Either you merged the wrong .reg file (should be from step 1), didn't approve all of the prompts at step 4, or something is blocking the .reg file from merging.

    Try temporarily disabling any 3rd party AV or malware program to see if it you are able to fully merge the .reg file in step 1 to have the context menu work for you.

    I have windows defender as the antivirus so that should not create a problem.I have taken snaps of all the steps which you can see.
    I followed the tutorial carefully. see this

    Do you have UAC enabled and turned on?

    I didn't see a prompt for it.

    User Account Control (UAC) - Change Settings in Windows 8

    Nar, Windows Defender wouldn't cause an issue.

    Bagavan,

    I'm afraid that I don't know why it's not merging completely for you since it always works fine on all my installations. I'm stumped.

    You might give it a try again the next time you do a clean install of Windows 8.
