Key notes

  • An updated context menu is part of the new Windows 11 update.
  • Microsoft has been bringing a lot of changes to some features to align with the new OS.
  • Users were having issues getting used to the new context menu.

It seems Microsoft’s users have a lot to get used to with the new features and those continually getting updated. The context menu is among the latest updates, and users are having problems maneuvering. 

Microsoft updated the context menu to align with Windows 11’s new look, and now it only shows essential options.

Grouped elements

Elements in the context menu have all been grouped, and users will see a ‘show more options’ entry making it tiresome to find some commands.

Well, it seems WinRAR noticed the issue and decided to fix it. If you have been having problems or just outright hated the new context menu, WinRAR is here to save the day. 

New WinRAR category 

WinRAR has a version 6.10 beta category which is the latest version. This version brings all the items on the context menu to the screen. Users, therefore, don’t have to go through a hard time going through archives as the ‘show more options’ is not required.

This is a huge step by WinRAR, and more developers are likely to follow suit and update their apps. Windows 11 is relatively new, so developers may still be cooking something to take advantage of the new context menu.

Since Microsoft will do a complete rollout of Windows 11 by the end of summer 2022, no one is in a hurry. WinRAR is making sure all PCs get the correct update of the OS.
