How To Add 'Attributes' To The Right Click Menu

When you work with files on your Windows operating system, their behavior In how they can be accessed and whether they can In fact be viewed and/or edited, Is determined by their respective attributes. Given there are so many file attributes that you can work with, It can be a somewhat arduous task locating each one. As such, In this tutorial, I will show you how to add Attributes to the right-click context menu.

It's way beyond the scope of this article to elaborate on every file attribute, hence I'll only explain one of the most commonly used, namely read-only. So what exactly does this do? In very simple terms and as Its name Implies, It modifies the file's permissions, thereby content cannot be written to It, only viewed (hence read only).

To simplify the process of accessing file attributes, I will demonstrate how to add It to the right-click of the mouse, by using a neat little Registry file. The result will be precisely as per the Image above. All that's required on your part, Is to double-click the file, follow a couple of prompts and the Attributes option will be added thereafter.

I have provided the download links to the Registry file, 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 Its contents to a folder of your choice and double-click the Add Attributes.reg file. It will prompt whether to add the entries to the Windows Registry, so hit Yes.

Step Two:

A message will be returned, confirming that the entries have been successfully added to the Registry, so click OK to finalize the process.

Step Three:

I've now right-clicked on my folder named Windows 10 Tips and as you can see, Attributes has been added to the context menu, Inclusive of Its respective options. Perfect! I can apply my selection with a click of the mouse.

Last Step:

In the event you've changed your mind and want to remove Attributes from the right-click menu, simply double-click the Remove Attributes.reg file, and hit Yes.

Final Thoughts:

As you've most likely realized, nothing beats having each attribute accessible via a simple right-click of the mouse. I've only demonstrated one folder, so of course, the same will apply when right-clicking files. The other good thing about this tweak, Is that you can reverse the change just as easy as It Is to apply.

Use any of the links below to download the aforementioned Registry files.
