        It happened again today.

        I installed a Windows 10 Feature Update (21H1), and lost two (2) of my extra custom context menu items. The two in question pass the selected file name(s) to attrib.exe, a system utility that dates all the way to PC-DOS 1.0.

        Strangely, other custom menu items that call command line utilities, a mix of commercially available programs (streams.exe from the SysInternals bundle) and privately developed programs (Date2FN.exe, a command line utility of my own devising that appends the last modified date to the base name of a file) are preserved.

        Go figure.
