Menu New ommits item that has different Default and FriendlyTypeName

Post by *hugobruno » 2019-08-27, 21:06 UTC

If there is a different Default and FriendlyTypeName data TC is not showing the item in menu New. Windows Explorer does.

Example:

1. Find Computer\HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\txtfile
2. Set FriendlyTypeName different from Default.
3. Verify New context menus in Explorer and TC.

It's not documented anywhere, so I had to guess how the Explorer does it...

On https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/win32/shell/fa-progids is some documentation. FriendlyTypeName should be used for this purpose.
