Missing "Edit with Gimp"
I installed Gimp on a new Win10 PC yesterday, but there is an issue. There is no entry in the Context Menu "Edit with GIMP". I uninstalled the software, installed it again, checked the associations, and not a single typr of graphics file comes up with "Edit with GIMP".
Anyone any clue what's going wrong? Unfortunately if I can't fix this I will have to abandon GIMP. BOO!
You can add Gimp using the File Associations in Windows:

I did. But "Edit with Gimp" was still missing. When I manually associate with a specific file type it just changes what happens when I click "Open". The problem is that I already have an application that is using "Open". I don't understand where "Edit with Gimp" has gone! lol. My other PC is just fine. For some reason I can't duplicate what that "other PC" has.

Run the Gimp Installer again, but this time use the customise option

When you get to the File associations section, click on select all.

Works here.

I did that. I Still no "Edit with Gimp".  So, has it been removed then? I see that you don't have that in your menu either.

This is what I have on my other PC -

Also: How To Change The Edit Application In Windows
Apologize for answering an old thread, but I stumbled across this when googling the same issue. As I think the answers missed the point of the initial question, I 'd like to share the correct answer:

when copening the context menu of an image, there is supposed to be an entry "Open with Gimp". It's not an issue about setting a default applications or add an application to the "Open with..." submenu. Both are also valid ways to open images with gimp, but have their disadvantages:

To add this entry, you need to edit the Windows Registry. Be careful doing this as there are good chances to mess your system up if you delete, add or edit a wrong key or value. I'll forgo to explain how to edit the registry as there are already various guidelines available explaining it way better than I could:

Open the registry with administrative privileges, and add the following keys:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations\image\shell\Edit with Gimp\
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations\image\shell\Edit with Gimp\command

Edit the value of the "(Default)" entry to "C:\Program Files\GIMP 2\bin\gimp-2.10.exe" "%1" (note: the name and path of the executable may vary. Check your application path beforehand).
