Personalization Disable "Show more options" context menu in Windows 11


  • Staff
Show_more_options_banner.png

This tutorial will show you how to enable or disable having to click on "Show more options" to see the full context menu for your account or all users in Windows 11.

When you right click on an item in Windows 11, you will see a new modern condensed context menu with Show more options (Shift+F10) at the bottom you have to click on to see all available options.

Reference:

If you use the context menu a lot, then you will most likely find having to click on Show more options annoying anytime you need more options.

Pressing the Shift + F10 keys while having something selected will open the "Show more options" context menu for that item.

Starting with Windows 11 build 22572, you can now also press Shift + right click in File Explorer and the Desktop to be the same as click/tap on the “Show more options” context menu item.

Starting with Windows 11 build 26058 (Canary and Dev), to make it easier to use the File Explorer context menu, labels have been added to previously unlabeled actions such as cut, copy, paste, rename, share, and delete.

If you like, you can disable this condensed Show more options context menu to always have it open too see the full context menu again when you right click on an item.

Hi, I'm trying to Disable "Show more options" offline but it doesn't work:
Code:
reg load "HKEY_USERS\DUMMY" "W:\Users\Default\NTUser.dat"
reg Add "HKEY_USERS\DUMMY\Software\Classes\CLSID\{86ca1aa0-34aa-4e8b-a509-50c905bae2a2}\InprocServer32" /f /ve
reg unload "HKEY_USERS\DUMMY"
other entries like
Code:
reg add "HKEY_USERS\DUMMY\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced" /v "HideFileExt" /t "REG_DWORD" /d "0" /f
work.

As much as I want to try Win11 in the form that Microsoft intended, this was just a step too far. I was constantly clicking the "more options," so caved and did as the OP detailed.

While this is just my opinion, no one should ever use Windows in the default configuration or the way microsoft intends. A user should always customize their copy of Windows to suit their personal computing style and methodology.

Your PC, your rules, not microsoft's.

Shawn, thank you so much! The reg file worked for me. The "more options"context menu was irritating to say the least. It seemed everything I used required more clicks. Thanks again!

I tried to add this reg code and I got error.

Code:
reg add "HKEY_USERS\DUMMY\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced" /v "HideFileExt" /t "REG_DWORD" /d "0" /f

It can't add key to HKEY_USERS.

It should be the HKEY_CURRENT_USER (HKCU) key instead. :)

Good times. New OS, things you like, things you don't like. Wondering whether there will be a tutorial over at a certain place... Of course there is. And it works like a charm. This was one of the things I didn't like. Good old context menu is back now. :party:

Thanks @Brink!

Good times. New OS, things you like, things you don't like. Wondering whether there will be a tutorial over at a certain place... Of course there is. And it works like a charm. This was one of the things I didn't like. Good old context menu is back now. :party:

Thanks @Brink!

So far I've not found the new context menu annoying but this is the kind of thing Microsoft should have put in Settings>Personalization instead of forcing anyone into the Registry Editor.

Probably the first thing, i.e., the registry tweak in this tut, I will try after upgrading to Win 11. I am still waiting after MS to offer me the upgrade. I know I can do it myself, but I prefer to let MS do it as they mentioned in their notification the first day (October 5, 2021) Win 11 became available:

I was on verge of going back to W10 as the "show more properties" option was annoying me so much. The second page has all the stuff on first page anyway. I cannot imagine what numpty of a boss in the development team approved such a moronic change.

Thanks to this tutorial, I will persevere with W11 a bit longer.
