    How to customize Applications' right click menu

    Hi all,

    I was wondering if there is a way to customize applications' right click menu.
    For example, Internet Explorer, Outlook Express, MSWord, MSExcel, they all
    have different right click menu but I would like to add my own menu to them.

    What I would like to do is to highlight a word or a sentence, right click, and
    send them to my own menu to trigger an action (i.e. highlight a word and
    trigger "Wikipedia search" with the word).

    Please help me if you know the way to do this.

    Thanks in advance!

    Do you want to do this to existing applications or incorporate it into one of your own?

    Hi Code_Nerd,

    Thank you for your reply.

    I would like to do this to existing applications (Word, Excel, Internet Explorer, Outlook Express, etc.)

    Is this possible?

    Thank you,
