How to add PDF tools to Windows right-click context menu [Tip]

The Windows right-click context menu doesn’t include any PDF options on it. Nevertheless, you can still add a variety of PDF options to the context menu with the Quick PDF Tools utility. Then you can open PDF documents, merge them, split them and convert them to other formats from the context menu.

This is the Quick PDF Tools website from which you can add the freeware version of the software to Windows XP, Vista, 7 or 8 platforms. First, you’ll need to add your name and email in the text boxes before you can press the Download Now option. Then run through the Quick PDF Tools setup wizard.

Next, right-click on a PDF document to open its context menu. The context menu will now include an Open with Debenu PDF Tools option as below. In addition, there is Debenu PDF Tools submenu that has extra options on it.
