Hello everyone,
I was wondering if there is a way to (re)add “Edit with Paint 3D” to the context menu?
With Win10 it was an option, now it no longer is.

Btw, I am using the Classic Win10 context menu.

I just right-click an image, choose Show more options at the bottom of the list then choose Open with then Paint 3D, can then edit/markup/change an image. The Show more options gives a longer list of things to use. Open with usually is on the first context menu.

I don't know...
anyhow, I'm presuming you have the Win11 context menu? I decided to revert back to the Classic Win10 context menu and this option is missing. I should have posted this in my original post... I will now.

I have a batch script you can use to add or remove "Edit with Paint 3D" to context menu. The problem is if Paint 3D not installed, the context menu will not work.

Thanks, I tried this.
Below is only a part of my context menu, and I imagine that this “3D Edit” is what has been added (I don't remember it ever being part of the menu... or maybe I never noticed it). Anyhow, when I click on it, it gives me Paint 3D as one of the options I can use. (y)

Yes, that is the context menu option added by the batch script.

Please note that this is not a solution but a workaround in Windows 11 because I always need to choose Paint 3D to open in pop up menu and "mspaint.exe "%1" /ForceBootstrapPaint3D" argument is depreceted since Windows 10 21H2
