JSI Tip 8336. Add a 'Target / Open Container' to the right-click context menu of your shortcuts?


Many years ago, I downloaded Target.zip to add a right-click context menu to all shortcuts. I don't remember where It came from, but it continues to work on all NT-based operating systems (Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Server 2003).

To install the software:

1. Unzip the Target.zip file.

2. Move the Target.DLL and Target.INF file to the %SystemRoot%\System32 folder.

3. Right-click the Target.INF file and press Install.

NOTE: A Target Context Menu (Remove Only) entry will be added to Control Panel / Add\Remove Programs.
