How can we improve the Windows dev platform?

Allow context menu verbs with file explorer integration without setting the app as default for the file type

I want to add a context menue for *.jpg files to my app without setting the app as default app for *.jpg files.

For example, my app wants to add the context menue "resize images" for jpg files. But I don't want to set it as default app for jpgs, as the app isn't capable for viewing images.

    Mp3Tag is a highly rated meta-data editor that was ported to the store. It occasionally gets knocked in the reviews because the app version doesn't allows right-click "Tag with Mp3Tag" even though the dev really can't do anything about it. I use the app a lot and voted this feedback up in hope that it will be implemented in the near future. Please!
