Although there are countless goodies that, over the years, have made the Windows family of Operating Systems the awesomeness that it is, some truly “stand out” from the rest. And one such feature is the right click context menu. Having been a core component of the Windows line since its early days, the right click context menu is a feature that productivity nerds can’t do without, and makes it possible to access a bevy of options with just a mouse click. And the fact that it’s context sensitive (hence the name) makes things even better. But what if I told you that you can make it even more powerful?
Turns out, you can, thanks to Context Menu Tuner. An incredibly handy utility, it lets you customize Windows context menu to your heart’s content. From Autoplay to Pin To Taskbar, you can add just about any option to the right click context menu. What’s more, you can even add things like separators, and customize the item’s position in the context menu. Check out the details past the jump.
