Windows 11 – Get the old context menu back

I mean, I really tried … for months I kept trying, but in the end I gave up. I’m talking about the new Windows 11 context menu.

How many times did I click show more options? Probably thousands of times. The key combination Shift+F10 is then probably also not chosen as one could use it as an efficient/productive option.

I then searched for windows 11 context menu – hoping I would find a way recommended by the culprit Microsoft. Yes, I found a lot – in the end I solved it like this:

Open PowerShell or Terminal as it is called today (you don’t need to elevate.. I mean care about UAC, since it’s current user stuff..)

In Terminal, just type:

reg.exe add "HKCU\Software\Classes\CLSID\{86ca1aa0-34aa-4e8b-a509-50c905bae2a2}\InprocServer32" /f /ve
Get-Process explorer | Stop-Process
