Here's an example:
In HKCR\*\shell\ place:
Cmd (REG_SZ): &Cmd window in this directory
Then make a subkey: In HKCR\*\shell\Cmd\ place command (REG_SZ):
cmd /K cd "%0\.." & title Context Menu Cmd Window & mode con lines=60
cmd "c:\phplib\Context Cmd window.lnk"
If you do the second one (which is preferable for me) my
Context Cmd window.lnk shortcut has the following properties set:
under General: Context Cmd window
Shortcut key: None
Run: Normal window
Cursor size: Small
Display options: Window
Edit options: QuickEdit mode, Insert mode
Screen buffer size: Width: 90, Height: 300
Window size: Width: 90, Height: 70
Window position: Let system position window
If you have a custom editor you like, you could do something like:
\HKCR\*\shell\Edit2: &Edit (with emacs)
\HKCR\*\shell\Edit2\command: C:\Program Files\emacs\bin\runemacs.exe -
geometry 155x59 "%1"
For a specific file type it's a bit more involved. Let's say .jpg
\HKCR\.jpg\(Default) and see the value listed there. It's jpegfile
\HKCR\jpegfile\shellResize\command: c:\phpdir\php-win.exe "C:\Photo
\Util\Resize.php" "%1" %*
That %0 and %1 are the file that you are right clicking on.
The quotes (") are because of possible spaces in file names
%* means any remaining arguments

I've never worked with "SendTo" and I don't know the answer to that.
