Add HomeGroup To The Right Click Context Menu

If you're running a small business or home network, one of the easiest ways to share office documents, Images, music, video files and also printers, Is to create a HomeGroup, thereby all devices on the same network can communicate with each other. Wouldn't It be nice If you could access HomeGroup via the right-click of the mouse? Well, In this tutorial, I will show you how to add HomeGroup to the right-click context menu.

Before I make a start, here's what I'm referring to. In the Windows 10 Search box, enter homegroup and click on the search result at the top as shown below.

If you haven't created a HomeGroup as yet, you'll be prompted to do so by simply following the onscreen prompts. 

Whilst It's simple enough to access your HomeGroup using the Search function, nothing beats the simplicity via a right-click of the mouse. As such, I will demonstrate how to add It to the right-click context menu, by using a neat little Registry file.

All that's required on your part, Is to double-click the Registry file, follow a couple of prompts and HomeGroup will be added to the right-click thereafter. I have provided the download links to the Registry file, at the end of this article. So without further ado, let's rip Into this tutorial.

Step One:

Once you've downloaded the file, extract Its contents to a folder of your choice and double-click the Add HomeGroup.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 Windows Registry, so click OK to finalize the process.

Step Three:

I've navigated to my computer's desktop, right-clicked on a blank area and as you can see, the HomeGroup option, Inclusive of Its respective settings, has been successfully applied. Let's make sure It's functional, by hitting Change homegroup settings.

Step Four:

As expected, the HomeGroup window has executed. I've yet to create a HomeGroup, hence I can do exactly that by following the onscreen prompts.

Last Step:

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

Final Thoughts:

Although this Implementation may seem like a somewhat lengthy process, you'll be surprised that It only takes around a minute or so to complete from start to finish. Moreover, the change can be reversed, just as easy as It Is to apply. Do note, that the HomeGroup option Is not available when you right-click a blank area In File Explorer- only on your computer's desktop.

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