    I understand how to add an item, but when I do it, the document I end up getting on the desktop has no formatting. Is there a way to set default formatting for New items in the context menu?

    Regards,

    What program are you using to create the document? What exactly is the context menu entry?

    Joe, I have a couple of programs that read HTML files, so I sometimes would just want to start a new HTML file. Back in the days of Win_98 (and 2000?) TweakUI had a "box" where you could drop formatted documents and they would be added to the "New" section of the context menu.

    I got how to add items to the "New" section in Win_7, but how would/could I dictate specific format guidelines to the "blank sheet"?

    Make an html, formatted as you want, as a template.
    Put it in C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Templates

    Open Registry Editor and go to:
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.HTML
    Create a new key named ShellNew
    In the right-pane, create a REG_SZ (String Value) named FileName
    Double click that and change its value to the filename you gave your template.
    You can put the template in another folder but then you wil have to type the full path here.
