How to Add Unblock File Context Menu in Windows 10

The Attachment Manager is included in Windows to help protect your PC from unsafe attachments that you might receive with an e-mail message and from unsafe files that you might save from the Internet. If the Attachment Manager identifies an attachment that might be unsafe, the Attachment Manager prevents (blocks) you from opening the file, or it warns you before you open the file.

It uses the IAttachmentExecute application programming interface (API) to find the file type, to find the file association. When one of these applications saves a downloaded file on a disk formatted with NTFS, then it updates the metadata for the file with the zone it was downloaded from. The metadata is saved as an Alternate Data Stream (ADS). If you wish to unblock a downloaded file, you can do so by right-clicking it, selecting Properties and clicking on Unblock.

The Open File – Security Warning prompt is a security measure that will ask for your permission before opening a file on your PC that came from an unknown source such as the Internet or another PC.

Windows SmartScreen helps keep your PC safer by warning you before running unrecognized apps and files downloaded from the Internet.

Open File – Security Warning and Windows SmartScreen automatically blocks these types of apps and files until you unblock them.

If you like, you can add Unblock to the context menu of files and folders to make unblocking files easier as needed.

When you click on Unblock in the context menu of a blocked file, you will be prompted by either a Open File – Security Warning or Windows Defender Smartscreen dialog to approve unblocking the file without opening or running the file.

When you click on Unblock in the context menu of a folder, you can select to Unblock files only in this folder or Unblock files in this folder and subfolders. You will not get prompted by a Open File – Security Warning or Windows Defender Smartscreen dialog to approve.

This tutorial will show you how to add or remove an Unblock file context menu to files and folders for all users in Windows 10.

How to Add or Remove Move to OneDrive Context Menu in Windows 10

In Windows 10, you can easily save your files to OneDrive and get to them from any device, like your PC, tablet, or phone.

OneDrive is free online storage at OneDrive.com that comes with your Microsoft account. It’s like an extra hard drive that’s available from any of the devices you use. You no longer need to email files to yourself or carry around (and possibly lose) a USB flash drive. Instead, whether you’re on your laptop and working on a presentation, viewing photos from your last family vacation on your new tablet, or on your phone reviewing your shopping list, you can get to your files in OneDrive.

Getting started with OneDrive is easy. You can add files already on your PC to OneDrive by either copying them over or moving them from your PC. When you save new files, you can choose to save them to OneDrive so you can get to them from any device and share them with other people. And, if your PC has a built-in camera, you can automatically save copies of the photos in your camera roll to OneDrive, so you’ll always have a backup.

When you have OneDrive running in the background in Windows 10, all files will have a Move to OneDrive context menu available. If OneDrive is not currently running, the Move to OneDrive context menu will no longer be available.

When you are signed in to OneDrive with your Microsoft account and use the Move to OneDrive context menu, the file will be moved to your online OneDrive.

This tutorial will show you how to add or remove the Move to OneDrive context menu for files for all users in Windows 10.

How to Add Secure Delete to Recycle Bin Context Menu in Windows 10

The Recycle Bin provides a safety net when deleting files or folders. When you delete any of these items from your hard disk, Windows places it in the Recycle Bin and the Recycle Bin icon changes from empty to full.

If you have multiple hard drives, partitions, or an external hard drive connected to your PC, each location will have its own $Recycle.Bin and Recycle Bin settings. Removable drives, such as USB flash drives and memory cards, will not have a Recycle Bin. Files deleted from removable drives are permanently deleted.

When you delete a file or folder in Windows, the item(s) get placed in the Recycle Bin by default until you empty the Recycle Bin to permanently delete them if you didn’t want to restore them.

However, permanently deleting a file or folder doesn’t secure delete them.

Secure Delete will delete and overwrite a file or folder to securely erase any data that exists in the unallocated portions of a disk for the deleted file or folder so it gone forever and cannot be recovered.

If you like, you can add Secure Delete to the Recycle Bin context menu that will secure erase all items (files and folders) in the Recycle Bin deleted from the “C:” drive for the current user.

The Secure Delete context menu will perform 3 passes to securely erase only the items in the Recycle Bin deleted from the “C:” drive for the current user. If you would prefer to have more passes, then please post a reply in this tutorial requesting it, and I’ll post an updated .reg file for it. If you would like to have the Recycle Bin of other drive letters included, then please post a reply in this tutorial requesting it, and I’ll post an updated .reg file for it.

This tutorial will show you how to add Secure Delete to the Recycle Bin context menu for all users in Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10.

However, permanently deleting a file or folder doesn’t secure delete them.

Secure Delete will delete and overwrite a file or folder to securely erase any data that exists in the unallocated portions of a disk for the deleted file or folder so it gone forever and cannot be recovered.

The Secure Delete context menu will perform 3 passes to securely erase the selected file(s) and/or folder(s). If you would prefer to have more passes, then please post a reply in this tutorial requesting it, and I’ll post an updated .reg file for it.
