Right Click Menu

By hhjaxfl ·
Hello
I just installed Paint Shop Pro 7 and now when I right click on anything I get a "Browes with Paint Shop Pro 7" link which is quite large.
Question, Where or how do I edit the right click menu contents? I would like to change it to just PSP7 that way the menu doesn't fill the screen every time I right click or remove it completely.
Any help will be appreciated
Thanks

No that's not quiet what I was looking for.The File option area changes the way a file is opened.When you click on a bmp file you can change it to open with say paint or PSP7 or whatever program you like. What I am looking for in put in by the installed program and I'm afraid is in the registry somewhere.
Any other Ideas
Thanks again

Well, the only location I know of that handles folders is at HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Shell

There are several folders under Shell (find, Notepad and others). You should have one there for PSP; I am not sure what it will be called but you should be able to tell.
Open the folder and the Default entry, it should equal "Browes with Paint Shop Pro 7".
Change this Default value to whatever you want it to be.
Now, right-click on a folder, and it should now show the short message you want.Now, as for right-clicking on individual files, I can't remember what that one is. It could be under HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\file. Look around.

You can always do a Find in Regedit for the phrase you are looking for.

hope this helps

Good deal you make that pretty easy.
Thank you very much for telling me where to go and also that there is a Find in the regedit. What a time saver that will be. I try and stay out of the registry but now I know how to find things.
Thanks Again
THanks again

Go to Google & type this search word without the brackets ( pcmenuedit ) & all as one word. The search result is a small program which lets you edit the right click menu.

This is the source site

Thanks for the help I took a look at the file and it does about the same thing as going in and editing the files in the File Veiw area of options. I took a look and that wouldn't change the right menu text.
Thanks anyway
