Adding ContextMenu Item(Handler) for Recent Apps in StartMenu RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi ,

     I have written Context menu Handler (COM Dll).

    when i right click on any Exe, on the Menu I see my new Menu item. (from Desktop or Explorer window).

    When I right click on Exe, on startmenu ( Recent Apps) I dont see my new menu item.

    Can anyone suggest, if I need to modify Registry, to fix the problem?

    I am adding the screen shot of the Menu, where I want to add.

    Thanks in advance for your help. (I am using windows 2008 R2).

    Thanks

    The context-menu entries for Directories is built from these locations in the registry. The same applies for the Start button in the Taskbar. You can add keys into them.

     

    [HKCR\Folder\Shell\]

    [HKCR\Folder\ShellEx\ContextMenuHandlers\]

    [HKCR\Directory\Shell\]

    [HKCR\Directory\ShellEx\ContextMenuHandlers\]

    [HKCR\AllFilesystemObjects\shell\]

    [HKCR \ AllFilesystemObjects \ shellex \ ContextMenuHandlers\]

     

    Here are some articles about Creating Shortcut Menu Handlers ,Group Policy Settings for Start Menu and Taskbar
