The Right-Click Context Menu in Windows offers useful options. Although Windows does not let you add or remove anything from context menu via any UI, you can use a third-party software like Easy Context Menu to customize it. We already have freeware like the Right-Click Extender or Context Menu Editor, that let you add or remove context menu items. Today let us have a look at this free tool.
Easy Context Menu for Windows
Easy Context Menu (Earlier Bluelife Context Menu) is a context menu editor that helps users to add any installed application to the context menu or any image or icon to the context menu item.
The download package consists of 2 files. If you are using 32-bit Windows, click on EcMenu.exe and if you have 64-bit Windows, click on EcMenu_x64.exe. You don’t have to install it since this is a portable software.
All the preset items that you can add are categorized into various sections such as Tools, System Tools, Turn Off Options, etc. A very useful feature of this tool is that you can add different items to the context menu for different locations. For instance, you can add a set of tools to the desktop context menu and a different set of apps to This PC context menu. Similarly, you can also add or remove options from the Folder Context Menu, File Context Menu, EXE File Context Menu and so on.
Add preset program, tool and option to Context Menu
To add any preset app, tool or power option to the Context Menu, just make a tick in the corresponding box and apply your changes. The very first button with the mouse icon refers to Apply Changes.
Context Menu Cleaner

Easy Context Menu List Editor
By default, Easy Context Menu will allow you to add only those programs, tools and options, what are already included in the list. However, you can also add your own favorite program to the context menu, by using the List Editor. You can add the image, audio or any other item to the context menu.
To do so, click on List Editor button, which is the third button from the left. Next, click on Add New and select Application Files(*.*) from the drop-down menu. Next select the desired program file. It is also possible to rename the file, change its location in context menu, let Windows open the file with administrator privilege and more. One all is done, click on Save Changes. Your item will be added to the context menu.
