“Context Menu” Patch for Visual Studio 2010

If you have been using Visual Studio 2010 for any time at all then you’ve no doubt been annoyed by scrolling context menus.  This issue arises when you right-click an item within the Solution Explorer and, although there is plenty of screen real estate, the context menu forces you to scroll through the menu items.

A set of hotfixes has been released to mostly resolve this issue.  I say “mostly” because if your screen resolution is set fairly low and/or you have a lot of Visual Studio add-ins/extensions installed, then the context menu still may not be fully expanded when displayed.
