    In XP, I recently made a few new windows explorer context menu commands in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell, and wanted to group them all into a submenu. I've got about 10 custom commands now and my context menu's looking pretty bulky... I spent the past couple hours trying creative google searches, and found dozens of pages on creating context menus for filetypes/folders/drives, but not one mentioned anything about creating submenus. Anyone know how to do this, or if it's even possible? Much thanks in advance :cool:

    Try searching for:

    add shell context submenu​

    A good tutorial is here:

    How to Use Submenus in a Context Menu Shell Extension
    http://www.codeproject.com/KB/shell/ctxextsubmenu.aspx?display=Print
    I also use HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell to create context menu items. I've avoided adding a submenu just because it requires an extra key stroke to get to the item! My menu is not quite as bulky as yours - just 7 items.
