I sthere any way to edit the right-click options when I right-click on an image on the web? I would like to remove the..."set as wallpaper" option from the list or possibly any way of adding other options as well?

there must be a way and it's probably through regedit to get the most control
i came across this utility but i haven't checked it out
may be of use to you

Vera: is this utility valid for Win ME? I have long ago stopped using Win95, but such a utility sounds very useful......Brent

V and Brent,

I did some checking around after following your link and I came across a free utility called, ContextEDIT,10615,77428,00.html

It is free and is for WIN95/98/NT and I hope 2000.

i went to download the menuedit from the ZDNET link i posted to see if it would work with win98 but the download page comes back "page not found"
oh well
did the context edit work for you?

I went back and reread the readme.txt and it stated that the Contextedit utility is meant to edit the "right-click" menu options from Windows Explorer only and is based on the 3-letter extensions. It is pretty useful if you want to edit in Windows Explorer, but I am looking for something that lets me edit the R-C options from other programs like Internet Explorer. It is definitely a registry editing exercise, but I don't want to manually mess with the registry.

I also found another handy utility...
go to and search for a utility called MULTIREN
It is really simple and FREE and no extra files are added to your system. It's full name is multiple rename and lets you do sequential renames in large batches. I found it handy to rename digital camera photos in a series all at once.

Good luck!

I agree with Jerold and would also like to edit
other pgms' RC options. If anyone runs into one, please let us know.
