with XP how do you edit the right click mouse menu?

The RClick menus vary depending on what apps have been installed and which running application (and its various elements) you are clicking on. Most are controlled by registry entries and modified by software installations.

So there are a number of routes and it depends on what you are hoping to edit. Which specific commands did you want to alter or enable?? and which applications are of relevance??

Hi Paul

the culprit was a shareware app called safeclean, now uninstalled. It has left 'browse with diskinfo' and 'delete with safeclean' in the right click menu.

Ahhh - you want to clean up a bit of dirt that was left behind.

You could try RegCleaner (http://www.webattack.com/get/regcleaner.shtml) or other similar utility; otherwise it may take a manual search of the registry with all its inherent problems.

Unlikely to work but you could also try reinstalling and reuninstalling safeclean without anything else (or after installing RegCleaner, when it would be more likely to get all the entries).
