Ok. Could you try with the file 7-Zip_Windows11.reg and check if it works for you? In my case it didn't work

@Dhyfer1 It adds context option to older shell menu. I don't know if that was the intention.
Hmm, I see. I thought the archive created 7zip entries for the new context menu but it does not.
Ok, thanks for replying.
@AveYo OK. Now I see it clear. About the 7zip icon you used a wrong image. "\shell\ConnectNetworkDrive" was what you used on line 6 and that's why that icon appears in the context menu, it would have been better to use \shell\windowscompressedfileextract but I don't know where you got the icons either. Can you tell me where you got the icons from?
And about this Notepad++ gist, why doesn't it appear with the others in your gist repository? I don't see it in your list
The icon is automatic, you can't change it. On the legacy menu it shows the designated 7-zip one.
These are hijacked entries, meant as an example on how to add your own context menu entries without creating a freaking store app.
extract verb is more useful for something else like the Notepad++ entry here. I originally shared it on mdl. Thanks to ChuckMichael it's on github as well, I see no issue with that.
@AveYo Well, I only was just curious to know where Windows 11 stores the icons used in the new context menu.

Oh, thank you very much. I really needed that information, now I will be able to use some icons I need. Thanks again :)

It works, thanks.
Thanks for the Reg key. I just want to know if you found a solution for the icon.
There is a post on 11F about the assets that might be helpful:
As I realized, MS use "Segoe Fluent Icon" and "Segoe MDL2 Assets" fonts for some part of Windows UI.
These two links might be helpful, too:
@ChuckMichael It really works? I haven't tried it yet and I can even tell you that I'm a bit suspicious, because before knowing your gist I had tried this file (also from @AveYo) and it doesn't work.
