Explorer context menu submenus

4 posts in this topic

Hi.

I already have context menus (for example, when a user right-clicks any file in explorer) but I have lots of options I want to add, and would like to put them in a submenu, like WinRar, Winzip, and so on do; something like Explorer's "New", "View", and "SendTo" menu items.

Is there a way to do this in AutoIt?

It appears you are looking for a ShellExtension

This may help... I haven't really looked at it :D

I can't see anything in that pdf that would help me create a context submenu.

I'm preferably looking for a way to do it in AutoIt, if possible. If I have to code a shell extension dll, fair enough, and if anyone could point me at some helpful documents, I'd appreciate it - my own searches are coming up blank.
