How to restore the old right-click menu in Windows 11

The Windows 11 Context Menu is shorter and does not display the required options, but it can be changed to make it look like it used to. Here in this article we show you how to restore the old right-click menu menu in Windows 11.

The most annoying new feature of Windows 11 is the short menu that appears when you right-click on any file. If previous versions of Windows showed all the required options, the new menu is limited to a handful of options.

For example, when you right-click on a txt file, the option to open it with Notepad ++, one of the favorite editors, is not displayed. You need to click Show more options to access this software, and this can be annoying for some users because there was no such problem in Windows 10.

It’s still unclear why Microsoft decided to change one of the useful features of the previous generation of Windows and make it worse than ever. But they may think the new interface is cleaner and tidier than ever. But as the menu gets smaller, only the user’s time is wasted to find the option they want. Microsoft does not offer an option in the settings to restore the previous menu, but there is a registry hack that can give you full menus in Windows 11.

How to get the old right-click menus in Windows 11

Open Regedit. You can do this in Windows 11 by pressing the Windows + R key combination and typing regedit in the Run box, or you can search using regedit.


Create a new registry key called {86ca1aa0-34aa-4e8b-a509-50c905bae2a2} under CLSID. You can right-click in the window and select New-> Key to create the desired option and then enter the correct folder name.

You should now create a new key called InprocServer32 under {86ca1aa0-34aa-4e8b-a509-50c905bae2a2..

Open the Default key in InprocServer32 and leave its Value blank, then click OK.

At this point you will notice that the data that was initially represented by the value not set is now displayed blank.

Finally, you need to close the registry editor and restart your system.

Now your system menu will be displayed in a classic style. Remove the InProc32 key if you want to return to the default and short menu. We hope this article is useful for you.
