The easiest way to add any Ribbon command to the context menu is to use Winaero's Context Menu Tuner. It has an easy-to-use interface and will allow you to add any command you want to the right-click menu. The command is called "Windows.ModernShare". See the following screenshot:

If you prefer doing it manually by editing the Registry yourself, read on.

Here are the contents of the *.reg file that you need to apply.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00


Run Notepad. Copy and paste the text above into a new document.

In Notepad, press Ctrl + S or execute the File - Save item in the menu. This will open the Save dialog.

There, type or copy-paste the following name "Share.reg" including quotes. Double quotes are important to ensure that the file will get the "*.reg" extension and not *.reg.txt. You can save the file to any desired location, for example, you can put it in your Desktop folder.

Now, double-click the file Share.reg that you created. Confirm the UAC prompt and click Yes to merge it into the Registry.

The command will appear in the context menu instantly. See the following screenshots:

Now you can share a file between installed apps just with one click.
