I already did a registry tweak to make the Windows 11 context menu behave as it always did - and I expect that will be a popular change for many people. I see that Florian may have done something to fix w11 context menus on installation, but in my post-tweak scenario, the update doesn't work.
Is there another registry tweak I can use to get it working again? I use the right click

Thank you! It worked right away....
This was the fix (from Florian in the thread you linked to)
You could try this from a command prompt with administrative rights:

A new issue has arisen - I used to be able to highlight two or more albums, then right click into mp3tag.
Now I'm getting the message "Application Not Found" in that situation.
Also, whenever the right-click is about to fail, the context menu entry "mp3tag" becomes "MP3TAG". Odd.
I surprised myself and fixed it in the registry.
There was a path to the .exe that was wrong - it showed the app in the folder "C:\Program Files (x86)" but I have it in "C:\Mp3tag" instead, so I made the change.
The location in the registry was:
It seems to be correctly indicated everywhere else in the registry.
