ikjadoon Posted February 17, 2022 Share Posted February 17, 2022 (edited) I might've missed the discussion on this (search only brought up this non-Paint.NET generic Windows 11 discussion in Off-Topic). My apologies if this has already been requested, though I didn't see it on the Roadmap, either. Currently, Paint.NET on Windows 11 has lost its image context menu option in the Windows 11 redesign. The only way to access Paint.NET's editor in Windows 11 now is by first hovering over Open With -> scrolling to Paint.NET -> clicking Paint.NET. I'd love to have the old single-click "Edit" menu make a return to Paint.NET. The feature request: add "Edit with Paint.NET" as a single context menu option, using Microsoft's latest guidelines: Quote Your context menu extension must be implemented by using the IExplorerCommand interface. Context menu extensions that implement IContextMenu will appear in the older context menu instead. Your app must have package identity. To achieve this, you can package your app in an MSIX package, or you can create a sparse package that grants identity to your app. I'm not sure if this is possible with how Paint.NET is written, but I hope it can be added in some future Paint.NET update. For example, WinRAR has recently added this option in their latest updates: However, because they have multiple options, it's been forced into a cascading menu (as required by Windows 11). I think Paint.NET will be better served with a single context menu entry (or allow for both single vs cascaded options).
