Windows 11 - Activate classic context menu

Mitglied: colinardo
Short tip for those who are annoyed by the new context menu under Windows 11. But there is a hack to define the classic menu as the default.

Quickly activate the classic menu via Powershell for the current user:
or as an alternative method via *.reg file with a followed log off / log in or by restarting the explorer instance.

It is important that the "(default)" value is really set to an empty string, if the value is set to "(value not set)" then the trick will not work.

To revert to the modern menu just remove the created entries and log off or restart explorer.
