FileMenu Tools 5.8.1
John

(Dec 17, 2010)

Not what it says on the Tin!

Finally, a program to help me sort out my context menu issues in Windows Vista. I got even more enthusiastic when reading some of the raving reviews and I could see my fruitless searching had finally come to an end. FileMenu Tools lead me to believe it would grant me control over the context menu.

Wrong!

The major issue I had was the order of some of the items on the context menu. They weren't in the order I wanted them.

FileMenu did not resolve that problem at all. All it did was give me ANOTHER item in the menu and another item over which I had no control where it went. I didn't want an extra item, I wanted to change the order of the existing menu and I still couldn't do that.

Worse, FileMenu Tools actually seem to throw my already messy Context Menu even further into disarray. Which was only 'restored' to its previous less jumbled state after I de-installed it.

I had a look at the the features, anyway. The FileMenu Tools option does give you (some) control over the items within it. And it is fair to say there were a few options I thought that could be handy, however I soon found out not all of the options I had ticked were available in my context menu (note 1), this struck me as odd, but I could live with that, they weren't the ones I cared about.

However, this is where my second disappointment occurred. An option 'Copy Name' is for me useful, however no 'Paste Name'. So I could copy the name for a selected file, but in order to paste it I had to do it 'old style' (note 2).
FileMenu Tools does give you the option to add programmable items to the menu, however not for this type of action (note 3). Meaning, doing it old style is actually quicker for me, so no benefit there either.

Which brings me to my last and final point, a vital point for any application and usually forgotten or poorly done is the 'Help'. Unfortunately FileMenu Tools is not an exception. The online help is non existent, consisting out of a few screen shots not explaining anything.
The application help isn't much better, it seems to assume prior knowledge on the tool or it assumes the user knows the inner workings of their OS (in my case Vista).

Conclusion:
If you, like me would like to have full control over your context menu, this tool will not give it to you.

note 1:
Whether this was because of Vista or I just didn't have the applications that were associated with those options, I don't know. But after my initial disappointments I didn't really bother to investigate it further.

note 2:
The usual F2 and CRTL+V (with the occasional CTRL+A if I erred).

note 3:
I tried to see what the instructions were for the 'Copy Name' within FileMenu Tools, however those weren't shown and the options of the new menu item didn't seem to allow me to program to 'Paste Name' it.

FileMenu Tools freeware - The Latest Versions History
7.7 Oct 5, 2019 New Release Added new property in the configuration of the commands to sort the files before passing them to the command. They can be sorted by name, by extension, by creation time, by modification time and by file size. This property can be set to all commands, both custom commands and built-in commands.
New command: Join folders. This command moves the contents of all selected folders into a new folder.
New command: Encrypt Files. This command allows you to encrypt the selected files using a password. The encryption algorithm is AES of 256 bits. The .enc extension is added to the encrypted file and for this type of file a new command will be displayed in the menu named Decrypt File, which allows you to decrypt the file by entering the same password previously used to encrypt it.
Change Time: added the ability to fill in the date and time from different sources: from a file in disk, from the earliest time of the selected files, from the oldest time of the selected files.
