How to add a flow to SharePoint context menu

I have created a simple Power Automate flow that triggers for a selected item and I want to have it show up in the SharePoint context menu. A consultant had done it for us in a test/demo tenant, he is no longer available, and I cannot figure out how to do it. Below is what he has done and I want to replicate.

It appears as though the Flows you have highlighted use a "for a selected file" trigger.  The Flows will not appear on the menu unless you have a file selected (only 1).

Also, for users to see the Flow, your users will need to be "run only users".  The easy way to do that is to add the library as a run only user - any user who has contribute access or higher to the library will see the Flow and be able to execute it.
