Manage files with a few mouse clicks

Context Menu Shell Extension. Click to view full size image. Everyone deals with a lot of files such as office documents, image files, audio records in everyday work. The most frequent tasks are copying files and folders, opening them with different programs, sending files by email and so on. A lot of these operations can be performed by using context (shortcut) menus. What does the context menu mean?

Right-clicking an object with Microsoft Windows 95 and later systems usually pops up a context menu. This menu contains a list of commands that you can select to perform various actions on the object.

Because context (shortcut) menus are often used for file management, the shell provides a set of default commands, such as Cut and Copy, that appears on the context menu for any file. When you right-clicks an object, such as a file, that is displayed in Microsoft Windows Explorer or on the desktop, a context menu appears with a list of commands. Then you can perform an action on the file, such as opening or deleting it, by selecting the appropriate command.

Context Magic: Find a Shortcut Object. Click to view full size image. Context Magic greatly extends the list of available features. It is a multi-purpose context (shortcut) menu extension that allows to copy or move files to folders that are used most of all, such as My Documents, My Pictures or My Music.

Also it can be used for opening files with programs that are not registered as default handlers for particular file types. For instance, image viewer can be registered as default program for image files. But if you need to edit some bitmap file, you have to launch an editing program to accomplish this task. It can be easily achieved with Context Magic. Just right-click a file, point to Context Magic | Open Selected File With, and then click Paint in the list of available programs.

Next useful feature of Context Magic is an ability to send files by email. To do so, select one or several files in the Windows Explorer, right-click them, point to Context Magic | Email Selected Files and then select a recipient in the list.

Context Magic: Command Prompt Here. Click to view full size image. Shortcuts is a quick way to start frequently used programs or open a file or folder without having to go to its installed location. Context Magic allows to create shortcuts on the Desktop, Favorites or Start Menu in two mouse clicks.

Last but not least are additional features provided by Context Magic, such as copying file (folder) names to Clipboard, opening command prompt for folders (like the Command Prompt Here PowerToy does) and finding objects that shortcuts point to.

As Context Magic is a shell extension, it is always ready and available to use. To bring it up, just right-click a file or folder in Windows Explorer and point to Context Magic in the pop-up menu.
