Add "Play Now" option to Windows Context Menu (Shell Int)

Post by zephyr » Tue Nov 12, 2013 10:37 am

Hi,

My default action is 'play last', and I have a shortcut for 'Play Next' (ctrl+enter) and 'Play Now' (Alt+Enter).

I wondered if there's a way to expose the 'Play Now' command, so it can added as a context menu for right-clicking files and folders...

I also seem to have something blocking MM from making changes via Shell Integration UI... If I tick to add 'Play Next' or 'Play Last'.. nothing happens, even after restarting.

I was hoping to identify the registry change made by MM when adding the context menu 'shell integration' option, then use that as a template, modified to perform the 'play now' command...

Do I Need to run as admin to elevate to have privileges to modify context via MM Shell Integration options, or is this another limitation of running a portable installation ?

I'm running Portable 4.1 beta and the options are available in Windows Explorer context (checked on folder). However I run Windows as Administrator.
