Windows 11 Tweaks

Windows 11 is again even more “user friendly” than before - or just bad and dumb user interface choices for the sake of change.

Disable Simplified Right Click Menu

The reason is Windows hides important items under additional menu which requires one more click and frankly it is so depressing to do it again and again. I don’t like Windows mostly, because it forces me to question my sanity and I ask myself “Why am I doing this to myself?” and “Is Bill Gates feeding out of sucking my life force from wasting my time?” And I don’t even work or use Windows much. Only for playing games and browsing web.

I use these shell extensions the most:

  • 7zip - extract with folder autodetect
  • Properties
  • Open with
  • Create new -> Text file

This change will show old detailed menu right away on a right click:

  • run cmd.exe
  • add this key to Windows registry

    reg add "HKCU\Software\Classes\CLSID\{86ca1aa0-34aa-4e8b-a509-50c905bae2a2}\InprocServer32" /f /ve
  • close Windows Explorer and open again
