In File Explorer in Windows 11, the right-click context menu has been streamlined to make it easier to get to popular commands. You’ll find your available options in a reorganized layout.  

To open the context menu, right-click (or press and hold) on a file or folder in File Explorer. 

To find commands from the previous Windows 10 context menu: 

  1. Right-click (or press and hold) on a file or folder to open the context menu.

  2. Select Show more options.

Note: Not all extensions from Windows 10 will be available in Windows 11. Some apps will update over time to join the new context menu. Check with your app developer about availability and timing for specific apps.
