Add Programs to Right Click – Customise your Right Click

Posted on 08. Sep, 2009 by Webmaster Blog in Tricks and Tips

A member in my community was Asking Me ..” how 2 add any programs to right click “. So I did some searching and found this great article. Here it Goes -
This document gives step by step instructions for customizing the options that appear on the right-click menu for various file types. I have found this particularly useful for designing and testing web pages.
Typically, before uploading a HTML page, you will want to view it in both Netscape and Internet Explorer, and you may wish to make quick edits using, say, WordPad. To make this easier for myself I have added a “Netscape” and an “Edit” option to the right-click menu for all HTML files, (IE is my default browser). This means I can open HTML files in Internet Explorer, Netscape or WordPad with two clicks, instead of dragging files all over the desktop, or opening applications and doing a “File Open”.

For GIFs and JPEGS, I have also added the Netscape option, and I’ve linked the “Edit” option to my favorite graphics editing program.

This document discusses editing the Windows Registry. This gives you complete control over the configuration of your menus, but you should be extremely careful not to change Registry values that are used by other applications. The author accepts no responsibility for any problems that may arise as a result of any changes to the Registry, even for those changes outlined in this example.

If you want to avoid modifying the registry directly, many of the changes described here can also be made in Windows Explorer’s “Folder Options” menu. To use this approach, double click “My Computer”, select the “Tools” menu, then “Folder Options”, then the “File Types” tab. From here, you can highlight the file type you wish to change, then click the “Advanced” button to change the menu options that appear for the file type. This won’t give you complete control of every option, but it is probably sufficient for most needs, and it is much less likely to cause problems as a result of accidental changes to the wrong registry keys.

    Google Ad Sense is when a web site owner opens an account with Google to place advertisement on their web site. When a person clicks this advertisement, the web site owner gets an average commission of .45 cents. A web site that gets a lot of traffic, they can easily make $150,000 per month.
    There are message boards claiming to be informing the public about scams being done by companies or individuals. These web sites have individuals working for them for the sole purpose of targeting companies or individuals in order to generate traffic to the web site. This method is artificially generating traffic to the web site, this is FRAUD as outlined by Google. The higher the traffic, the higher the percentage of individuals that will click onto the Google advertisements.
    Additionally, Individuals post copy right information about a company on these types of web sites; this is against the policy of the Google Ad Sense program.
    If you believe that you are being targeted by individuals on a particular web site; simply click the Ads by Google in the bottom right hand corner of the advertisement on the web site. You will be taken to a Google page, click onto: Report a policy violation regarding the site or ads you just saw.
    File a report and the Google Fraud Department will investigate.
