I finally upgraded to Windows 11 and hate the added step to open a folder in VS Code from the file explorer.
In the new right-click context menu, you have to click “Show more options”, then “Open with Code”.
I’m sure there’s a way to modify the registry to add more options on the initial menu, but why reinvent the wheel. Someone has already built it.
I installed “Custom Context Menu” from the windows store. It says it’s $0.99 but you can install the trial and there are no limits. The $0.99 is there if you want to support the creator which is amazing.
Support creators whenever possible!
This project is open source as well. Feel free to check out the repo linked in the description.
After installing it, I added a menu called VSCode, the exe command is code, param is path, I added match folder and file of * to match all. This tells the program when this menu should be shown. I want it to always be an option.
In the settings you can customize the name of the top level menu name.
Now, when I right-click, I see the menu option right away!
