10 Best Context Menu Editors for Windows 10

In case you don’t know, Context Menu or the right-click menu is the one that opens up whenever you right-click on an application or a folder.

It is a convenient way to access the options which are hidden or hard to find. It provides us with a lot of options to manage our files and folder such as cut, copy, paste, delete, and rename. It also provides an option to run any application as an administrator.
