Disable "Show more options" Menu in Windows 11 File Explorer

This was annoying me greatly so I researched how to get the original full options menu back every time you right-click a file vs having to click 'Show more options' to access it.

  1. Right-click the Start button and choose Windows Terminal.
  2. Copy the command from below, paste it in Windows Terminal Window, and press enter.
reg.exe add "HKCU\Software\Classes\CLSID\{86ca1aa0-34aa-4e8b-a509-50c905bae2a2}\InprocServer32" /f /ve
  1. Restart File Explorer or your computer for the changes to take effect.

You should see the Legacy Right Click Context menu by default.
