This time, we will show you the way to get an option to open a folder or hard drive partition in new window from right click context menu in Windows 7 .

 

Open in New Window on right click context menu

Now, how to get it.

Open Notepad and write the following code:

 

 

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTDirectoryshell<span style="color: #ff0000;">opennewwindow</span>] @=”Open in New Window”[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTDirectoryshell<span style="color: #ff0000;">opennewwindow</span>command] @=”explorer %1?[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTDriveshell<span style="color: #ff0000;">opennewwindow</span>] @=”Open in New Window”[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTDriveshell<span style="color: #ff0000;">opennewwindow</span>command] @=”explorer %1?

 

The red text is what you want to see in right click context menu. We could have name it AnotherHeadache.reg

 

Save the file as Open in new window.reg and do not forget to change the file type from text to All files from drop down menu in Notepad before saving it. Name does not matter here at all. You can save as boring_name.reg and it will work.

 

Now, double click the reg file and accept the security warnings and you will see the option in right click context menu when clicked on a folder or any empty place inside folder or Windows 7 desktop.

 

Removal:

 

Add a minus sign before the H starts after the third bracket; like [-HKEY_CLASSES.... to all where there is HKEY and save it (with some good name) as reg file and run it. It will break the association; so the option will disappear from right click context menu.

Obviously, you might delete the bat file manually too.
