By editing the Windows Registry, you can add Open with for any application to the Windows desktop right-click context menu in Windows 10. This can be quite useful if you use any program frequently. Let us see how to do it.
Add any application to right-click menu in Windows 10
Type regedit in the Start search box and hit Enter. Once the Registry Editor opens, navigate to the following key-
Right-click in the right-side panel and click on New > Key.
Set the name of this newly created Key to what the entry should be labeled in the right-click context menu. As an example, I have named it FileZilla.
Select the newly created FileZilla key and now, right-click on the right-side panel and click on New > Key, again.
Set the name of this newly created Key as command. Navigate inside that command key.
You will now find a new String value on the right-side panel. We have to modify it.
To do this, you will need to have the full path of the program that you want to execute from the Context Menu.
Get it copied to your clipboard and paste this path in double-quotes in the Value Data field and then select OK. In this case, you need to know the file path of filezilla.exe.
Once you are done with that, it will look like this.
Reboot your computer for the changes to take effect.
Now, you will be able to access programs using the Windows 10 Desktop right-click context menu.
