Add 'History' To The Right Click Context Menu

You never know If your computer will all of a sudden lose functionality, to the point of having to perform a clean Installation of Windows 10. As such, all data that's stored on the hard disk, will be wiped clean, hence can be a difficult process to recover the lot In Its entirety. It's of the utmost Importance to perform backups on a regular basis, thus In this tutorial, I will show you how to add 'History' to the right-click context menu.

So what exactly Is this all about? Well, I'm glad you've asked! Once the History option has been added to the right-click of the mouse, It allows you to Instantly access a native Windows utility named File History, thereby you can perform backups of files located on your Desktop, Favorites, Libraries and Contacts folders.

Given these directories are defaulted to Windows and commonly used by the majority of computational users, It makes perfect sense to safeguard their contents. To achieve this, I will use a neat little Registry file, that will automatically add the entries to the Windows Registry and apply the History option to the right-click menu 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 History.reg file as shown below. It will prompt whether to add the entries to the Windows Registry, so click Yes.

Step Two:

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

Step Three:

I've now right-clicked on a blank area on my computer's desktop and as you can see, the History option has been successfully added. Let's make sure It's functional, by clicking It.

Step Four:

As expected, the File History window has Immediately executed. In my case, It's turned off but If yours Is enabled, you can begin to backup your files located In the directories as mentioned at the beginning of this article.

Last Step:

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

Final Thoughts:

Although It's not a difficult task to access File History, namely by navigating to Control Panel, nothing beats having the option readily available via a right-click of the mouse. Moreover, the change can be reversed, just as easy as It Is to apply.

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