    How to edit (add or remove) entries in new right click menu in Windows 11? It is possible through registry? I haven't seen any guide. I only see guides how to restore old menu.

    Yes Sir but he was correct to his point that none of the tweaks section of W11 let him tweak his context menu items either remove or add thatswhy i suggested him a Newly Published app UWT 5 for W11 today & i think it has done its job :)

    Unless I'm mistaken UWT can't edit/modify/add to the "new" Windows 11 context menus. Tons of other stuff on the Context Menus tab but nothing for the "new" style context menus, I never see them anyway, awful things!

    Neither can I see what "Show Command Prompt instead of PowerShell in the Win+X Menu" does, and it's on the new Windows 11 tab. It doesn't even set Terminal to open as Command Prompt by default.

    Does anyone know how to speed up boot time? There used to be something similar for windows 10 around here. Or some settings to speed up the internet connection?

    Not sure if this has been answered already, but is anyone else having this issue?

    I auto-hide my taskbar, but even when the option isn't turned on, I have to click my start menu button in order to click on the running apps to the right of it. It's like it acts like a lock button, I have to press it to unlock access to the open apps (alternatively, I could alt-tab, but the issue is not being able to click it if I wanted). and it functions as normal for a short period of time. I click off, close the window, and I need to click the start menu button to access the running apps to the right of it again.

    I'm not sure how to describe this problem in the search function here, so I thought i'd ask to see if anyone knows of a fix.

    I really want to add this to my context menu but I seem to be having a brain fart. How do we "run" this code exactly?

    How do we "input" this code to get this (and other) Context Menu tweaks?

    Sorry for the dumb question but I've never done this before.

    If the first line is - Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 - it must be .reg file
