Right-click menu, also known as Menu context, context menu, when right-clicking on the Desktop you will see a Menu with many functions appear. However, Windows 11 has changed the look of the Right-click Menu to make it more difficult to use. Some of you want to switch the Right-Click Menu back to Windows 10, fortunately there is a tool to help you do this easily.
The right-click menu in Windows 11 is redesigned and holds very little functionality compared to the Windows 10 Menu. It includes a row of icons for basic actions like copy, paste and delete, and below that there are more buttons. ‘Show more options’. You need to click 1 more half-click to see the Classic Menu of Windows 10, we take another 1 second to click.
On the other hand, the Windows 11 right-click menu does not automatically add the applications you want to open faster. For example, before when I needed to decompress, I just right-clicked on the compressed file and then used 7-Zip to decompress, but now with Windows 11 I have to manipulate a few more mouse clicks, which is quite frustrating.
Windows 11 Classic Context Menu v1.0 is a small application from the Sordum team that can automate that task and do it with one click.
You can restore the Windows 10 Right Click Menu by changing the Registry key:
This is a small and free Application that also has command line support for you to manipulate yourself, with just 1 click you can bring the Context Menu back to the Classic interface.
- To return to the Windows 10 Menu interface, click Enable Win11 Classic Context Menu Style
- To return to the Windows 11 Menu interface, click Enable Win11 Default Context Menu Style
Then select Restart Explorer to finish.
So you will not have difficulty using the right-click Menu on the Desktop of Windows 11 already.
