View Full Version : Windows2000 Prof shortcut menu

Use to be that Edit option in shortcut menu would appear if I right-click on a file in Window Explorer with a .bat extension. It has now disappear for some reasons. Not even Open with... option.
Nor would shift-right click make any difference.
Any ideas please. Thanks

Not sure but could it have something to do with permissions. Log on as Admin and see.

...i have not worked with Windows Professional 2000, but in Windows9x the following applies:

Open Windows Explorer and go > Tools > Folder Options > File Types > scroll down and click on 'MS-DOS Batch File' to highlight.

Click 'Edit' > click 'New' > in 'Action' type EDIT and click 'Okay'.

Click 'Browse' and drill down to select your 'application used to perform action' > follow 'prompts'.

Then, in the 'Actions' Window, click/highlight on EDIT (which you have just added) > click 'Set Default' > click Okay.

[You might need to reboot, can't recall]

Repeat these steps to add OPEN to your menu.
