Apply PowerShell To The Right Click Menu

The Windows PowerShell, Is a very powerful command-line tool that allows users to automate and troubleshoot an array of administration tasks, such as terminating non-responding processes, working with Active Directory, filtering computer network Information and a lot more. Having It accessible via a click of the mouse, Is certainly beneficial so In this tutorial, I will show you how to apply PowerShell to the right-click context menu.

Before I begin, here's what I'm referring to. To access PowerShell, open the Run menu, enter powershell and hit OK. You will then see the following window as per the Image below.

To show you just how powerful It Is, type Get-Command -Type Cmdlet, and hit the Enter key on your keyboard. You will then have a full list of commands to work with In PowerShell. Here's a minority of what's available.

I'd say It's safe to assume, that you're pretty much Impressed by It's capabilities, yes? Well, I will demonstrate how to add PowerShell to the right-click menu of the mouse, by using a neat little Registry file.

All that's required on your part, Is to execute the file, follow a couple of prompts, and the entries will be automatically added to the Windows Registry. You can then right-click on a blank area on your desktop, and execute PowerShell thereafter. I have provided the download links to the Registry files, at the end of this article. So without further delay, let's get this tutorial started.

Step One:
Once you've downloaded the file, extract It's contents to a folder of your choice, and double-click the Add PowerShell.reg file. It will ask whether to add the entries to the Registry, so hit Yes.

Step Two:
A message will be returned, confirming that the entries have been successfully added to the Windows Registry. Hit OK to finalize the process.

Step Three:
I've now right-clicked on a blank area on my desktop, and as you can see, PowerShell Is readily available. Let's click It to make sure It's working.

Step Four:
As expected, PowerShell has executed, thus confirming the right-click option Is fully functional.

Last Step:
If you change your mind and wish to remove PowerShell from the right-click menu, simply double-click the Remove PowerShell.reg file, and hit Yes.

Final Thoughts:
There's not much to add to what's already mentioned, other than the convenience of having such a powerful tool at your fingertips. Do remember, that this only applies when right-clicking on a blank area on the desktop.
