Windows 11 - New "Text Document" item is missing in "New" Context menu

#1 Post by pOpY » 09.10.2021, 19:47

Hey guys, just upgraded to Windows 11 and my New "Text Document" entry is missing in the "New" right clicl menu of Freecommander XE.
It's present and working under explorer and on the desktop.

Here are some pictures:

Did you mean to post images? None show for me, nor is there an active URL link.

Just the word "image", in both places where you clearly intended to provide screenshots.

Hi. Same problem here (FC build 859).
As shown in the screenshot below, the New "Text Document" item is missing in FC context menu, but it does exist in Windows 11 File Explorer.
Is it an FC issue?
How to fix it?

PS.: The link below is about a fix to add missing 'Text Document' to Windows context menu.
But since 'Text Document' already exists in Windows, I've thought I shouldn't try to fix what isn't broken...

Thanks!

Microsoft has probably made changes.
For me works the following change in the registry (FC 859 and above). Caution! Before making changes in the registry, you should make a backup:

Code: Select all

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.txt\ShellNew]
"ItemName"=hex(2):40,00,25,00,53,00,79,00,73,00,74,00,65,00,6d,00,52,00,6f,00,\
  6f,00,74,00,25,00,5c,00,73,00,79,00,73,00,74,00,65,00,6d,00,33,00,32,00,5c,\
  00,6e,00,6f,00,74,00,65,00,70,00,61,00,64,00,2e,00,65,00,78,00,65,00,2c,00,\

I had the same problem. Marek's fix works for me: thanks.
