Integration to folder context menu - also add to background context menu

Post by KillyMXI »

What I expect to be able to do:

Right click in the empty space of any folder and open XnViewMP from there.

What currently works:

Integration is turned on in the settings.
I have to get out of the folder and right click on its icon to get the context menu entry of XnViewMP.

The solution:

Explorer integration should add one more entry to the registry.
Currently XnViewMP adds to

Code: Select all

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell
It should also add to

Code: Select all

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell
Thanks

Why not just use

Code: Select all

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\XnViewMP
Foobar2000, PhotoFiltre, Vivaldi Browser (standalone), Windows Eleven Pro x64 22H2 (MPO disabled), XnView MP and XYplorer Pro
