The right-click contextmenu is not a command line. It is more like a 
list of no-arg* methods to call on the selected file.

* or rather, one input arg, with others having default values set when 
the menu entry is created. Sometimes a second input arg is handled, at 
least in effect, with a second submenu, but I am not familiar with how 
those are done in Windows.
