How to set the full right-click menu as default in Windows 11?

Windows 10 users have become used to the efficient right-click menu after 6 years. Since the launch of Windows 11, a start menu has been centralised and a single 2-click menu has been built that does not always allow users to work smoothly.

In this blog I will explain how you can restore your right-click menu as in Windows 10.

How to disable "Show more options" and activate the full right-click menu in Windows 11

Open PowerShell as administrator in Windows 11. Search via start for PowerShell -> Run as Administrator.

How to re-enable the Windows 11 standard shortcut menu

If you wish to return to the default settings of Windows 11, you can run this command at PowerShell. You must restart your computer or log out to complete this step.

'reg delete "HKCU\Software\Classes\CLSID{86ca1aa0-34aa-4e8b-a509-50c905bae2a2}" /f'
