Edit with Calibre (openwith)

I have been using the calibre editor a lot and, for some reason, the Windows 10 "Open with" does not always show the calibre editor even if I have used it before with "Open with > Choose another app". So now I'm using "Edit with Calibre" on the context menu with the help of a simple Registry text file.

Copy and paste the 3 lines below into a Notepad text file with the extension .reg (for example: editcalibre.reg) and save it. Double click on the file and it will prompt you to update your Registry. Then you will be able to right-click on an epub book and select "Edit with Calibre".


[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\Edit with Calibre]

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\Edit with Calibre\command]
@="C:\\Program Files\\Calibre2\\ebook-edit.exe \"%1\""

@phossler FYI : shell:sendto is shorthand for "C:\Users\ [ blah-blah ] \SendTo", see ==>> Shell Commands List

shell:xxxxx commands are not new, been around since XP (maybe before) - dunno why so few know of them. Most would folks only need remember a few of them.

messing with the registry ought be avoided.

@BR --

1. I didn't know that, so you can count me among the few

2. If it's an environment variable, then Windows+R, %APPDATA% (or what ever) also opens a explorer window to the folder

3. IMVVVHO it's easier to click than to type for operations that you don't do very often. Besides, if Bill Gates had wanted people to use the keyboard, Steve Jobs wouldn't have invented the mouse

Gates, Jobs etc were all still in elementary school, when Doug Engelbart invented the mouse. IIRC Woz was first to use it at Apple, on Lisa; and he got the idea when he saw the Xerox Star at Parc Place.

I use Winkey+R for shell:commands, so it always has those I frequently use in its MRU list, so I neither have to type or remember them .

I can't remember in which tin Windows keeps things, such as taskbar and start menu pins. One of them is hidden away in an Internet Exploiter directory
