I'm using v.11.12 X64.
First off, as said each time I ask for help, I'm not a computer genius.
I need basic things explained simply.
Try as I may, the Web Help confuses me no end because I don't have a technical background (I'm a B.A, heh).
Often, I can't see what the bigger picture of what Opus Manual is explaining.
I think I got even more alienated in the switch from v10 to v11 -- where the stuff I managed to setup got consigned to a poor man's "Directory Opus 10" toolbar set.
So, I've tended to avoid asking for help.
But this isn't toolbars (I think).
I've made no such changes since v10 as I have guessed I'd have to keep switching between toolbar sets 0 & 10.
I also went through many pages of the 201 pages that search = "context menu" returns on this site but (as far as I understand them) they don't seem to be what I need.
So, my apologies for asking basic stuff that most users get themselves... or if I've missed answers already given.
There's 2 things I'd like to do:
1. remove some items from the Opus Context Menu (right-click on either a file or a folder)
eg. some of the WinRAR options ; there's many context menu items I'll never use and they force regularly used items so low down that I have to scroll to get to them (eg. "Delete" is always off-screen):
• compress and email
• share with
• include in library (I just move them manually to various directories as I have hundreds of destination folders)
• etc etc
2. Batch some context menu items in a drop-down menu so there's only 1 item at the "root"
eg. I've created many colour-coded options that I apply to selected folders so I can quickly find them among dozens of folders.
Related to Q #1 above, if I could create an item called "Apply folder colour" or something and store all those colour-code choices in it (like how "Send To" has a lot of target folders in a drop-down list), it would make the context menu much more concise.
So, instead of the above screenshot, the Context menu would have:
(sorry, I'm not brilliant with Photoshop either).
This 2nd solution might also solve some of the Q#1 problem (eg. put all WinRAR options under I item with a drop-down menu) but not all (eg. "Scan for deleted files" is not part of a set).
Can someone please explain the steps to do these two (related) Context Menu tasks?
Your kindness will be rewarded in the next life.
