Exchange Servers >> add item in Rclick menu in explorer

Hi,

It is probably not the right place to ask...
How can I add a shortcut in the Rclick menu when the user
Rclick on a file in the explorer.
I would like to add my own "mail to" in it.
I have made a complete email program and would like
to add that "feature".
So when the user choose that option , it starts
my own emailprogram with the right parameters
(especially to add that file as an attachment)

kind regards
thanks in advance

Hi,

In Win Registry, see HKCR\*\shellexec\ContextMenuHandlers for examples
how entries are implemented, referring a GUID in HKCR\CLSID\<GUID>.

(HKCR is write protected for Windows standard users, so your setup might
be the place to add your key, as opposed to trying to do so at runtime)

Exchange Servers >> add item in Rclick menu in explorer Stefan,

I'm missing something,

I can see the HKCR\*\shellexec\ContextMenuHandlers
where the CLSID is stored.
(but there are only CLSID, no examples.)
so if i understand it, I should go to the CLSID to see the proper sample
in HKCR\CLSID\<GUID>. but this doesn't exist.
but I can find those CLSID in
HKLM\software\classes\*\shellex\contextmenuhandlers\<GUID>
But this doesn't reveal much, as far as my knowledge go
so can you explain a little bit more.

regards
christophe

Exchange Servers >> add item in Rclick menu in explorer Almost...

It is in "explore" not Explorer.
Where you can explore a drive and Rclick on a file.
There I want to add my own menuitem.
Where there is also a Menuitem "Open With"
or "rename"
hope this brings me closer to my goal...

thanks a lot for the help
christophe
