  • Own Right-Click Command - how to?

    I have been googling in vain in search of an example how to customize the contextual menu in Win XP. I want the command to be available for any text selection in any application. It would:

    1. Grab the selected text
    2. Do something with the text (say: reverse it)
    3. Put the result onto the clipboard (or paste it immediately if the text source is modifiable).

    Could any of you point me to any resource where I could see some examples and perhaps figure out how to put together this little tricky thingy. I guess it involves playing with registry which could cause some disaster, that's why I'd like to do as much reading as possible before starting to experiment.

    Cheerz everyone,

    You could look for a macro creation program / macro recorder. So when you press say CTRL + SHIFT + T it runs a macro that does what you asked.

    They do exist, we did a whole day of migrating our very old helpdesk software to a new one. The databases were incompatible to migrate so we did a manual copy of data using this macro recorder software... cant remember the name though... sorry. Im sure google can help.
