Context Menu, collapse or group?


Userlevel 1

Hello all, 

Quick question, is there anyway at all collapse the kaspersky context menu items, either within the application settings, apart from the obvious solution of deleting the values within the Registry Shell? 
Many thanks in advance!

Hello @new11,

Additional. 

  • Curiosity question: why would you want tocollapse kaspersky context menu items”? 

Intrigued:thinking:

  • Please share?
  • & a word of advice, any modifications to Kaspersky software, for example modifying the registry, may result in voiding the support contract a Kaspersky subscriber has with Kaspersky. 

Thank you:pray_tone3:

Hope it’s OK to chip in on this. Context menus can get very long and Kaspersky on its own adds three items. I can’t speak for new11, but for myself it would be helpful if Reputation in KSN and Application Advisor could be hidden, leaving only Scan for viruses visible. An alternative would be to create a group, so Kaspersky Security Cloud >  was the only visible item, then moving right showed all available options.

Sorry for chipping in.

Hello @Thoughts,

Welcome again and welcome to the discussion, there’s no need to apologize, everybody’s contribution is valuable:relaxed: !

For clarification → the Windows context menu

Sure, here is one by AxCrypt which makes 7 options accessible from a single context menu line. Right clicking a file or folder will show this.

A grouped context menu offers greater flexibility for the software, while markedly reducing context menu clutter for the user.

It’s rather primitive but below is a mock up of how it might appear.

Hello @Berny , @FLOOD 

Thank you for your answers and clarification.

@Thoughts , I completely agree with you! My context menu is so long it goes past the height of my 15” screen, with its own set of scrolling arrows. There are so many third-party programs that have added their own context items. I think you sum it up perfectly, a group would be perfect in tackling this issue.

In addition to this, having the ability to choose context menu values to add. For example, a user could choose to “add or not add” the “File Shredder” (A fantastic underutilized tool that I would really love to use more, but find there too many steps involved to simply access it)
