Adding context menu entries in Win 7

In Win7, how do you associate an app with a file type without
making it the default "open" tool for that app?

I know how that was done under XP, but the XP mechanism is gone now.
Something strange happened to me today and Windows forgot all the tool assignments for SWF files. I have it set again so that "open" runs the stand-alone flash player program from Adobe. But I want an additional entry in the right-click context menu to invoke FlashDigger.
I can do that by uninstalling and reinstalling Flashdigger, but that seems extreme. I could delve into the registry, but that's way beyond extreme. Is there a more straightforward way of doing it?
