Submit portable freeware that you find here. It helps if you include information like description, extraction instruction, Unicode support, whether it writes to the registry, and so on.

This program isn't useful at all without installing the shell extension using install/uninstall, and with the shell extension enabled, it writes several MUICache entries in the registry, which are not significant for specifying a program as stealth. It also writes a prefetch (.pf) file to C:\Windows when launched. However, Notepad3, listed as stealth, also does that. Not sure what gets removed when the shell extension is disabled. I didn't test that since install/uninstall requires a reboot, logout, or restarting explorer. May test that later to see what remains after uninstalling the shell extension. Settings are saved by default to Users/user/AppData/Roaming/Openwith++/settings.xml, but the settings folder can be changed to the program's folder under "options".
Requires Windows 7 x64 or higher, .NET Framework 4.8 x64 and Visual C++ 2019 Redistributable x64.
According to my tests, OpenWith++ works with Directory Opus and FreeCommanderXE. It doesn't work with Cubic Explorer, Explorer++, DoubleCommander, XYExplorer, or Q-Dir.
Tested on Windows 7 64-bit.
