#157 Start menu's context menu Order


Default windows context menu for the start menu always showed "Properties" at the bottom, but now, with classic shell's tweaks & adding the shortcut& folder creation functions, i have to scroll with the mouse to reach properties all the time.

Aim: having properties at the bottom, or an option to position each functions of the context menu in the settings .. .

    You can try things to see if they work for you:
    1. Go to Classic Start Menu settings -> all All Settings radio button at the bottom, then go to "General Behavior" tab and check an option called "Cascading right click menu". This will put all menu commands (Sort by name, Auto Arrange, New Folder and New Shortcut) into a submenu and Properties will become the 2nd last from bottom item.
    2. You can simply press Alt+Enter to bring up the Properties of the item like you can do in Windows Explorer. It even works for search results.

    that's an alternative that i don't prefer, since the original windows 7 right click elements order is still not respected, like a stitch .. . having a folder to access other functions which slows down the clicking process of creating folders & adding shortcuts there .. . & properties that isn't still at the bottom. the keys is not faster either as through the original element's order .. . cause i have to leave the mouse to go elect buttons .. .

    what i was requesting is an eventual update if possible that would keep properties at the bottom, Or a way to position those elements through
    start menu settings .. . the access would be faster as all windows os'
    submenus have been ordered.

    The reason I can't place my items before Properties is because I can't find which item is Properties. It may not always be last and it may not always be called "Properties".

    I understand Ivo, i've been facing the same issue trying to find the string in the registry, it's probably encrypted, or referenced in explorer.exe, i don't know.
    but please keep that request & keep trying/searching a way to do it & find
    that reg reference in the future, cause there must be a way, it's somewhere.

    thank you
