    With Windows 8.1 you just click open with but uncheck the 'do this for all files' or something like that. then the next time you right click the new program option will be there

    If you don't have it, you probably messed up your registry. Try searching the web.

    try this

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\Open With]
    @="{09799AFB-AD67-11d1-ABCD-00C04FC30936}"
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\Open With EncryptionMenu]
    @="{A470F8CF-A1E8-4f65-8335-227475AA5C46}"
    

    save in a text file and rename it .reg and run it. Not sure if it will work for win10.

    If you want help you need to be less cryptic... these are web addresses not files.

    forgot to mention, the above registry entry is to re-enable "open with" in win7/8.
