Windows 10 has a native feature named Sync Center, which allows network files In the form of offline files, become available when the network connection to the server Is down. Ultimately, when offline files Is enabled, users can access their network files, regardless of server availability. In this tutorial, I will show you how to add Sync Center (and Its respective settings) to the right-click context menu.
If you're not aware of Sync Center, Inclusive of how offline files operate, please refer to my tutorial located here. Before I begin with this guide, here's what I'm referring to. Open Control Panel, select Large Icons and then click on Sync Center. Every setting as Illustrated In red In the Image below, will be added to the right-click context menu.
Essentially, you'll simply right-click on a blank area on your desktop, and Sync Center will be readily available- precisely as per the first Image above. To achieve this, I will use a neat little Registry file, that will automatically add the entries to the Windows Registry. I have provided the download links to the Registry files, at the end of this article. So without further delay, let's get this started.
Once you've downloaded the file, extract Its contents to a folder of your choice, then double-click the Add Sync Center.reg file. It will ask whether to add the entries to the Windows Registry, so hit Yes.
A message will be returned, confirming that the entries have been successfully added to the Registry. Hit OK to finalize the process.
I've now right-clicked on a blank area on my desktop, and as you can see, Sync Center and Its respective settings are readily available.
Let's test It to make sure It's functioning correctly, by selecting a random setting. I've decided to click on Offline Files (Encryption) as arrowed below.
As expected, Offline Files Encryption has executed, hence all has gone according to plan.
In the event you change your mind and want to remove Sync Center from the right-click menu, simply double-click the Remove Sync Center.reg file, and hit Yes.
Although the Sync Center Itself Is not difficult at all to access, given there are quite a number of settings associated with It, having everything available via a simple right-click of the mouse Is certainly convenient. The good thing about this tweak, Is that It automatically adds the entries to the Windows Registry without the need for user Intervention.
