How to enable classic right-click context menu on Windows 11

We take a look at how the new right-click menu that comes with Windows 11 has been replaced with the ‘Full’ version.

Last month, we made the switch from Windows 10 , which we’ve been using for over six years, to Windows 11 . This version of the Windows start menu centered, task bar, rounded corners and with more visual innovation. One of them is the new right-click menu. This new right-click menu of Windows 11 is more minimalist than Windows 10 and you need to click on the ‘Show other options’ tab to access the full options. Some users find this innovation spot on, while others find the additional mouse click extremely annoying. If you are also bothered by additional mouse clicks, you can follow the methods below and have the old look.

There is no official method yet to undo this innovation. However, we can fix the full version of the right-click menu by default without using any third-party software. Through the registry, we can permanently change the system files without making changes and without being affected by the cumulative updates of Windows 11 .

Activation via Command Prompt

  1. Open Windows Terminal with Windows PowerShell or Command Prompt. Since the process we will do will be set on a user basis, you need to start it as ‘Administrator’.
  2. Aşağıdaki komutu kopyalayıp Windows Termainal’e yapıştırın ve Enter tuşuna basın.
reg add  "HKCU\Software\Classes\CLSID\{86ca1aa0-34aa-4e8b-a509-50c905bae2a2}" /f /ve

If everything is correct ‘Operation completed successfully.’ You will see the text. After this post close everything and restart session or computer. If no problems occurred, you will have your old right-click menu.

Activation via Registry

  1. Start Registry Editor. To open the application, you can type its name in the search bar or type ‘regedit’ in the ‘Run’ prompt and launch it.
  2. Find the following path in the application: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\CLASSES\CLSID\then right click on the ‘CLSID’ entry and  create a new Key named{86ca1aa0-34aa-4e8b-a509-50c905bae2a2}
  3. Under the Key you just created InprocServer32, create a new Key again and name it.
  4. Double-click the (Default) data on the right to open it. Leave the ‘Value data’ field blank and exit with OK.
