You can organize the FileMenu Tools commands into submenus. In order to add a submenu, click on the "Add SubMenu" button on toolbar or "Edit/Add SubMenu" menu item. Then you can drag and drop commands or even another submenus into the new submenu. 

You can configure the following properties in the submenus:

  • Modifier Key. The custom command only will be shown in the context menu if this key is pressed while the menu is displaying. The key is any of the following: SHIFT, CONTROL, or WINDOWS. If you set this parameter to "None", then the command always will be displayed in the context menu.
  • Show in context menu (Windows 11 only). Windows 11 has entirely refreshed the context menu and has replaced it with a completely new menu. You still can access to the classic menu when you click on "Show more options". FileMenu Tools can be displayed in both context menus. With the "Show in context menu" property you can configure in which context menu the command will be displayed: in the new context menu of Windows 11 only, in the classic context menu only, or both new and classic context menus. This property only will be possible to change it if the global setting is configured as "Both context menus" (click here for more info). 
  • Menu Text. Text to be shown in the context menu.
  • Description. A short description which describes the command.
  • Icon. The icon to be displayed in the context menu. If you click on the right side button then a dialog box will be displayed  to browse and select the icon.
  • Element Types. The command will be displayed only when any selected element in the Windows Explorer belongs to any of these element types. The element types can be files, folders or drives.
    • Files: you must specify the file extensions separated with a comma, and if you wish to specify all file types, enter * wildcard.
    • Folders: by default the command is displayed with all the folders, but you can specify also specific folders by typing the folders in the "Specific Folder" field. The folders must be separated with semicolons. You can use wildcards (* and ?), and specify both relative paths and absolute paths. For example: if you specify "Temp*", then the command will be displayed only when the selected folder begins with "Temp".
    • Drives: you can specify the drive types: fixed drive, removable drive, CD-ROM/DVD-ROM, network drive and RAM disk.
    • Number of elements: specifies how many elements must be selected in the Windows Explorer to show the command in the context menu. You can set the minimum and the maximum number of elements. For example, if you set minimum to 1 and maximum to 3, then the command will not be shown if you select 4 or more elements.
  • Replace Single Command. If "Yes", when the submenu has only a command, then the command will be included in place of the submenu. 

NOTE: the new Windows 11 context menu doesn't support submenus; therefore the submenus will be expanded in the new context menu and the commands into the submenu will be directly displayed in the main submenu of FileMenu Tools.
