How can I edit the right-click New File menu?

I normally initiate new files in Word and Excel from a right-click in the Dopus path bar. I just installed Open Office (for infrequent use), and it over-wrote the Word and Excel items in that menu. I need to revert to how it has those MS Office entries (and preferably also Open Office one).

How can I do this? Is there a way to edit that menu manually, or some other work around?

The menu entries, and empty template documents used to create new files, are defined in the registry. Repairing the MS Office install is probably the easiest way to restore things.

(It's the same menu and registry settings which File Explorer uses, so Opus isn't really involved here either.)
