I want to create a menu, similar to the menu that WinRAR creates when you right click a folder.

What API do I need to use?

You need to put values into the registry so I guess the API is the registry related functions.

I don't have a handy link available, but I would expect google can assist you to find the keys. But here is an example of one I use whenever I setup a new machine:
Code:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\*\Shell]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\*\Shell\Notepad]
@="Open with Notepad"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\*\Shell\Notepad\command]
@="C:\\WINDOWS\\notepad.exe %1"    
This adds notepad to the context menu.

And this one adds a cmd prompt for directories:
Code:
REGEDIT4
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\CmdHere]
@="CMD &Prompt Here"
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\CmdHere\command]
@="C:\\Windows\\System32\\cmd.exe /k cd \"/d %1\""

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Drive\shell\CmdHere]
@="CMD &Prompt Here"
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Drive\shell\CmdHere\command]
@="C:\\Windows\\System32\\cmd.exe /k cd \"/d %1\""

OzzY,

Perhaps shortcut menu handler is what you need.
