ContextEdit gives you control over the context menu commands (i.e., the commands that appear when you right-click on an object in Windows Explorer) available in your system. Windows Explorer gives you some control over this via its View | Options | File Types command. ContextEdit lets you do things that Windows Explorer does not, including:Disabling shell commands without deleting them entirely, Enabling and disabling Context Menu Handlers, Edit, create, and/or remove commands that are associated directly with a file extension instead of a named file type.
It will repair "broken" file associations in which an extension is linked to a master file type that does not exist.
It overcomes certain bugs in Windows Explorer when editing commands via View | Folder Options | File Types
Since this program lets you modify aspects of your system's behavior that Windows normally does not, it's a good idea to read the About File Associations topic in the Help file to get a better understanding of what information this program exposes to you and why.
