Not for faint hearted nor inexperienced users.
The developer Gregory A. Wolking is long gone so has his website.
Softpedia - ContextEdit is the only safe vendor.
Wolking last updated the code on 29-Mar-2002, but with 250,725 downloads it has been a very popular tool for those in-the-know.

The latest Softpedia - ContextEdit download is ZIPped container ...

  1. Setup.exe is the installer EXE file ( ContexEdit is not portable)
  2. must be extracted to access the 2 HELP files, depending on your OS.

AfxDlg.rtf . . . . for Win-10 users
ContextEdit.HLP . . . . . for Win-7/8.x ... and I presume earlier Win OS


Help file is missing from ZIP package and program is very old

ContextEdit is very old ... 2001.
The help file is missing from the ZIP download
Installer only, no portable version
Very versatile; file associations, modify (files/folder) context menu
Maybe its the very dated GUI that puts me off.
