Question

How can I customise Windows Explorer?

When I left-click on a drive letter, windows explorer defaults to the "search" function; when I right-click, the drop-down menu has "Search" at the top, instead of "Open".
How can I change this?

That's the context right click menu.

I've tried to follow these instructions but "ERUNT" isn't installed on my laptop. Where can I install/download it from?

Re: erunt

When I want to know where to download a program (say: erunt), I go to google.com in my browser and search for DOWNLOAD ERUNT. To see the result click on https://www.google.com/search?q=download+erunt

That's really a good way to find out. I don't think it ever failed me.

This is all greek to me; perhaps you could explain how to use regedit or shellmenuview to achieve my objective?

Sorry

But if I mess up any step by step or you didn't get it just right, then odd things can happen.

I offered my answer so you would find out how Windows does this and then do further research until you felt comfortable to make the changes.

Odd things have already happened or I wouldn't be asking for support!

So now you use what you know

To add the Open in the menu. Or move it to the top.

Normal sequence is:
Open
