Context Menu "Convert with XnConvert" broken on Windows 10

Postby ipzipzap » Fri Jun 03, 2016 8:56 am

Hi,

on Windows 10, you can check "Add 'Convert with XnConvert' to context menu" on the Settings-Tab, but it won't work and won't be saved. If you close and re-open XnConvert, the option is unckecked again.

Will there be a fix for that?

Thanks in advance,
ipzipzap

I didn't force it, because the user account already has local admin rights.

Now I tried again with "Run as Administrator" and the checkbox keeps checked now, but it still doesn't work as there is no option/submenu in the context menus.

EDIT: Additionally, jumplists on taskbar icons won't work anymore. If I disable the checkbox in XnConvert, the jumplists are working again. So this seems like a bug.

When you right click on a folder?

No, when I right click on a file.

No, because you wouldn't see anything because it doesn't work anymore. But you know what jumplists are?

Is there a way to add it to a context menu of a selection of multiple files? Would pay money for this.

Perhaps you can use Drag&Drop to achieve what you want:
The input list of XnConvert supports dropping of files onto it. So you could start XnConvert, select your files in Windows Explorer and drag&drop them onto XnConvert.

You can add a link to the SendTo menu or use a shell extension such as Filemenu Tools to add a custom contect menu entry. if you do use filemenu Tools, use %FILEPATHS% as the argument and not %FILENAMES% or you'll have trouble in folder paths that have apostrophes and maybe other characters as well.
