How do I get the "format" option back when I right-click on drives/devices? I registered Shell ,and now it's gone, but I can't add it back, because I don't know what program it is, or where it is on my pc! Please HELP!!

Hold the "Shift" key and "right-click", the "Format" item will appear.

Directory Opus does not use standard Windows menus so we will not be able to support it

Open shell.nss configuration file, then go to set section, then theme, change value of effect option to 0, then remove the // sign in front of the option. Save the file, then press Ctrl + right click to reload the settings

This issue appears with Windows 10 or earlier. You can fix it manually by opening a file "shell\imports\terminal.nss" and change title property value from title.terminal to id.terminal.title

Software is amazing, just trying to find out if it is possible with the show / hide system files to have it just show / hide hidden file instead?
