    Automatically Terminate When Launched From Context Menu

    Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 x64 Eraser 6.2.0.2992 If I launch Eraser from a Windows Explorer context menu, I would like it to terminate automatically when it is done. On the other hand, if I launch Eraser by selecting its icon from my Start menu, it should remain active until I manually terminate it.

    Eraser and Windows Explorer

    I reverted back to version 6.2.0.2992 on 10 Oct 2021. That version supports use from a Windows Explorer pull-down context menu. Thus, the problem was introduce in version 6.2.0.2993.

    I will have several opportunities to test it later this week. In the meantime, I would appreciate if there were a change log for each new version. This could be either on your Web site or a cumulative file installed with Eraser. I prefer the Web site so that I can see what changed before...
