Hi and thanx for promoting a neat app. I am requesting the same feature as what another user (mtolgae) requested on the app's main page:
adding a "search with google" option for inside windows' native context menu when highlighting text, right along with cut, copy and paste. It such a simple thing and so lacking when compared to what we can do in our browsers nowadays.
If your user is still developing the app and you're still in contact with him, it'd be a great feature to add. Thanx
Did you create this tool Vishal-Gupta, or are you promoting someone else's work?

This tool was created by an AskVG (my website) reader and was released by AskVG. :)

Thanks! It's really nice to know if people enjoy it or not! :)

About your question, as long as I know/searched there is only 2 positions for this, up and down. But if I found a way to use (if exist) the normal (middle i suppose...) option i will add it. ;)

Yes, all programs you add (with this tool) you can allways remove them using this tool (as long as you don't delete the "ListaProgramasAdicionados.txt" text file were the entries are stored=

Tip 1: If you added some programs using other method or tool you can add that programs to the "ListaProgramasAdicionados.txt" text file, one per line so this tool will remove them too

Tip 2: If you added some programs using other method or tool AND you wish to edit them, like change it's icon or position, just type the location of that file, choose a new icon and/or position and type the exactly current text shown in menu of that item in the "Text on Menu" text box. Then click "Add to Context Menu" button

Yes you can restore it back.

1 - Browse for comand prompt (cmd.exe) located at C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe

2 - The use the same location C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe for the icon

3 - Choose the "up" radiobutton

4 - Check the "Show only when SHIFT key is pressed" checkbox

5 - Add the text "Open command window here" in "Text on Menu" text box (or whatever you want to name it)

6 - Done! :)
This broke my "Open command window here" with Shift + Right Click. It disappeared after applying this. Anyway to get it back?
