    Whatever happened to my right click contex menu?  I used to have: copy, paste,delete,rename, save as, PRINT,edit. especially the print .
    Example: when i am in a documents file now I have:Arrange by, view, sort by, group by, refresh, delete,share with, new, properties. Not what I need or want.
    How do I revise the contex menu or simply get what I used to have?

    It depends on what you right-click on. The menu changes depending on what you click. For example, if you highlight some text and right click on it you will get such things as delete, copy etc.

    The features on right click are set with registry keys, the easiest way to fix is to use system restore back before this happened. It's important when using system restore to check what programs will be effected, as you may need to reload/repair these programs.
    Also this is a help in finding if an update or program has caused the problem. For example the restore point might say, restore point created when before removing PKzip.

    The context menu you want is the one from when you specifically right-click on files.

    The context menu you are seeing is because you are right-clicking on the background of the folder/view, not on any files.
