    1. You are doing it wrong. It does its work like a charm.

      BTW, nobody forces you to add or remove this context menu entry. It is all up to you. If you find it silly, well, just don’t add it. Other people find it useful.

  1. Adding it to context is kind silly, when you hover over the columns it already shows.
    But i guess this allows to do it from every where in the window. Would be cleaner if we could make a sub context menu. The windows context menu is so bloated, its just insane compared to OSX
