I am happy to announce a new version of my freeware app, Context Menu Tuner. I believe you'll find it useful. Here are all the changes made since version 2.1.
Context Menu Tuner is an application which allows you to customize Explorer's context menu in Windows 10, Windows 7, 8 and 8.1. Its key feature is the ability to add any Ribbon command to the context menu, which many users find very useful.
Besides that, the application will also allow you to add a custom command to the context menu of any file, folder, desktop background menu or/and specific file type. You can customize the appearance of the context menu item, e.g. adjust its position, add a separator before or after the item, prevent the command from being the default command and make it appear only in the extended context menu (when the SHIFT key is pressed).
Context Menu Tuner 3.0
In this new version, you can add custom or Ribbon commands to a drive's context menu (see the screenshot above). For example, you can add Disk Cleanup and open it directly for the selected drive.
I added the ability to add commands to the context menu of a library. This will allow you to add useful commands like "Change icon", "Set Save Location", "Restore Settings" or "Optimize library for" directly to the context menu of the selected library when you right click it in File Explorer.
Warning: When you add a command to a Library's context menu, it will also appear automatically in a folder's context menu. This is not a bug, that is how it behaves and it is required to get the context menu working properly.
User interface changes and improvements
I implemented a special blacklist of commands which can cause File Explorer to crash if you add them to the right click menu. Some commands reported by users are already in the list. If you have spot a Ribbon command which prevents File Explorer's context menu from working normally, please inform me about it and I will add it to the black list. Blacklisted commands will be prevented from being added to the context menu.
Finally, the application got a Brazilian Portuguese translation.
That's it. You can download Context Menu Tuner here:
