Restore Windows 11 Right-Click Context Menu

I’m not a huge fan of the new right-click context menu in Windows 11 because there are some utilities I use that I constantly need to select “Show More Options…” on.

To revert the new style right-click context menu to the old style, a simple Registry modification can be made; here’s the command line.

reg add "HKCU\Software\Classes\CLSID\{86ca1aa0-34aa-4e8b-a509-50c905bae2a2}\InprocServer32" /f /ve

Sign out of your Windows account and back in, or you can reboot.

To revert back to the new style right-click context menu, use the following command.

reg delete "HKCU\Software\Classes\CLSID\{86ca1aa0-34aa-4e8b-a509-50c905bae2a2}\InprocServer32" /f
