Windows 7: Add Defragment Option to Right-click Menu

Defragmenting the hard disk is an essential operation. However, many people do not like to schedule defragmentation to be performed automatically. By adding the defragment option to a drive’s right-click context menu, you can manually defragment quickly and easily.

Open the Run dialog by pressing the Windows key and “R” or start a new task from the Task Manager.

Start the Registry Editor by typing “regedit” into the run dialog and press enter.

Go to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT  >>  Drive >> shell in the left pane.

d

Right-click on shell and create a new key called “runas”.

Set the default value of runas in the right pane to “Defragment” by double-clicking on it.

Right-click on runas and create a new key called “command”.

Set the default value of command in the right pane to “defrag %1 –v -u” by double-clicking on it.

Restart the computer.

The right-click menu of the drives now will display the defragment option. When selected, it will start the defragmentation of that drive.
