Edit the context menu
If you find that the contextual menu is too long or heavy, you can supress several entries and reorganize them as you want, which could lighten the use of foobar.You can
, Remove , Rename or move up/down entries. It is quite straightforward and simple of use. If it is too messy, you can insert . Another proof of the foobar modularity.
