ShellMenuView
Take more control over your Explorer right-click menus

ShellMenuView is a tiny tool (under 50KB) which displays all the menu items that will appear when you right-click files or folders in Explorer, and allows you to disable any that you don't need.

You can do something similar by poking around in the Registry, of course, but ShellMenuView simplifies the process by displaying the menu additions for all file types in a single screen. So if you don't want a "Play with..." menu item to appear for a particular media player, say, then all you have to do is launch the program, scroll down to "Play with...", select all the items relating to this application, right-click one of them and select "Disable Selected Items": job done.

ShellMenuView won't let you edit a particular menu entry, unfortunately, but it can make it easier for you to do this yourself: just right-click an item and select "Open in REGEDIT".

And if you're not sure why you need an extension to open a particular file type at all, then the program may also be able to help. Simply right-click a menu entry, select "View extension in extensions.nirsoft.net", and a browser window will open with more details on programs that open that file type. Which can be very useful in confirming that this is a legitimate file association, and not something linked to malware.

Version 1.40

Added 'Quick Filter' feature (View -> Use Quick Filter or Ctrl+Q). When it's turned on, you can type a string in the text-box added under the toolbar and ShellMenuView will instantly filter the menu items, showing only items that contain the string you typed.

Verdict:

It really needs an option to delete, as well as disable menu items, but still, ShellMenuView is a handy tool that makes it easy to browse all your static context menu entries

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.90

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.18.90

- When receiving photos or GIFs, you can 3D Touch or swipe left on the notification and tap "View" to preview the media from within the notification (iOS 10+).
- You can now search on the Status tab to quickly find status updates.
