    What I am wanting to do is when I right click on a file have an option to run a command.

    for example:
    -filebot -rename "filename"

    This command would execute if I clicked on the option in the right click menu

    Hello imanewbe, [​IMG] to Windows 7 Forums,

    This may help; Add Programs To Windows 7 Context Menu -

    Hi Adamsappleone

    I have added the command to the Registry but all it does is opens the 'Open With'. I have added one key called 'Smart Rename' and this now appears in the context menu. I have then added a sub key which is called 'command' and for the value I have put 'cmd.exe filebot -rename'. Is there something else I need to do to get this to run that command?

    Thanks
