The right mouse button is probably under utilized. Windows neither gives you good tools/features that can be accessed from the right click menu nor does it give options to customize the same.
Add some power to the right mouse button by using the following apps and tools. They could save your time, get tasks done quicker than you think and over the course of time, become so essential.
#1. Send To Flickr Upload photos to Flickr straight from the right click menu. A preview windows shows the progress of the upload.
#2. Send To Gmail Enter your Gmail login credentials, right click on any file and send it to your Gmail account. A quick backup solution.
#3. Send To Google Docs Right click on any document to upload it to Google Docs
#4. DeleteOnClick Adds an option to the right click menu to securely delete files so that they will not be recoverable later.
#5. Unlocker Windows gives an annoying File Cannot be Deleted message if you try to delete any file that is being used by a process. You can just right click and select the Unlocker tool to override this warning and proceed with the deletion.
