Disable Windows Edge Context Menu/Right click

Q: Disable Windows Edge Context Menu/Right click

Hi.

I
am running a computer in Windows 10 Pro In Kiosk Mode (Assigned Access) and this will run a Single Microsoft store app in full screen. The app running is
Windows
Edge running a single URL to my company's website.


Kiosk
mode restricts the users from accessing desktop, switch apps or change settings. Which is exactly what I want. I plan to use this PC for public use, to ONLY display content from our website. The public users cannot do anything else on this pc.


The
issue I am having is in this Kiosk Mode - running Edge. Right click is enabled and this brings up the Microsoft Edge Context Menu. The public users can highlight a text, and do a "Search the Web for <whatever is highlighted>". This brings up
another webpage and brings the computer to be unusable. This new webpage is blocked in fullscreen and due to the system being in Kiosk mode, we are unable to get out of this screen. Only option is to Alt CTRL Del, and sign into another user to restart the
computer.


How do I disable Windows Edge Context Menu or disable the right click on the mouse for Windows Edge?


Any help with this problem will be greatly appreciated.



Thanks

Hi there,

When you right click on an running app, in Windows 7, shows a context menu and i want to disable it. You can see the jpg to see an example.

Best regards.

A:Disable context menu when i right click on an app in the taskbar

You could probably do it with AutoHotkey.


Code:
#IfWinActive ahk_class Shell_TrayWnd
RButton:: ;do nothing
return
AutoHotkey is free

Edit: you may need to ask for help on ahk forum since what I dashed off above might also kill right click in the System Tray.

How do I disable the appskey (right click context menu key) on my keyboard? I have no need to (and I don't know why anyone would) right click using the keyboard. And I keep hitting it while typing a capital letter (when I miss the shift key), which brings up a menu and either stops me typing or causes me to select something I didn't want to on the context menu. Oh for the days when keyboards had less keys and you could use the gaps to orientate your fingers!

So I have a new problem to add to the many I have already had with my new PC. Just this day when I right click on the desktop the cursor turns into the loading wheel and it loads indefinitely. The context menu never appears and I am unable to click on any desktop icons.
I can enter the start menu and bring up the task manager, so the computer is not completely frozen.
 
I have Windows 8.1 
 
EDIT:
 
- I did a boot in safe-mode (minimal) right-click context menu worked fine.
- I disabled Avast! anti-virus on Startup (Under Task Manager > Startup).
The reason is this is the only program I have, that I can think of, that affects the context menu (with scan file/folder option in right click menu)
- I restarted into normal Windows mode (not safe mode). Right click menu loaded fine.
- I re-enabled Avast! anti-virus on startup (to see if it was the cause).
- I restarted the system again. Right click worked fine, with Avast! turned on. I made no changes to anything.
 
 
I can't understand what temporarily caused my problem and my problem persisted after turning off and back on my system twice. I'm not certain my problem will happen again, but I have updated my Avast! software encase it was the cause. (Things seem to be running fine now, but I don't know how long things will stay well.)

I have Onenote installed on my Windows 8.1 laptop.

Is it possible to right click a text document (or any file/document) saved on my laptop and have it sent to Onenote.

Onenote does not show when I right click a text document.

I have used Evernote before and I'm sure I could do this.

Perhaps it is possible but Onenote does it in a different way?

Thanks

A:Onenote - Add file using Windows right-click context menu

As long as a program loads files specified on the command line you can add the shortcut to the program to the SendTo Menu. Then you can right click a file, move the mouse to Send To and click the shortcut. The program should come up with that file(or pass it to an already running instance of the program.)

To open SendTo folder hit Winkey r, then type
shell:sendto

Just make a shortcut to the program in that folder.

OS is Windows 7 Ultimate SP1. Following some system file corruption, It was reinstalled about a week ago. Since then tons of updates downloaded automatically (as recommended by MS).

It started from yesterday that my context menu options under "right click\new" has become limited to just "folder" in all "drive volume/partitions" i.e. drives D: ,E: ,F: , etc. and not in just C: where it is actually correct by default to show just the "folder".

So, I'd appreciate if you could advice how to restore the list of options under "right click\new" to the other drive partitions

Hi, I'd like to add a context menu entry to the default set
Open/Open all users/Explore/Explore All users/Sort by Name/Rename etc
which appear when you

right click on a folder in an expanded Start menu (after 'Programs).

Technically, the 'folder' is a 'file folder'.

But the normal set of file folder context menu entries is suppressed by Windows in this instance.

Thus normal additions to the context menu set associated with 'anything' or 'file folders' or 'directories' never affects this set (so far).

I can add context menu entries which appear when I right click on a shortcut, but NOT folders.

I've tried Fast Explorer, and a couple of other utilities.

'Sort By Name', 'Explore All Users' are not in the registry. (Normally context menu entries appear in one of about 6 locations).

Ideas welcome!

Background: I want to do this 'cos I want to keep a 'bad' context menu entry that stops explorer running from this context menu (some programs do that, alas, thus you can't right click, explore the start menu once you install them and their context menu). Normally I have disabled such entries using Shellex View.

So I want to add one which uses a different file manager.

Thanks!

Hey it's been a while since I've last been here, I really enjoy this Win 7 community hope everyone is doing well.

Anyway let me cut to the chase, basically I want to be able to remove the MagicISO context menu from the right click context menu in Windows 7.

See pics to understand what I'm talking about.

Even after unchecking the "Enable Shell Integration" (see picture 3) option in MagicISO Maker, it still shows up, and when I open the program again the check box is still ticked for that particular option.

I know I never had any issue in Vista or XP, but in this version of Windows it seems unable to work.

I looked on the http://www.magiciso.com website for an update to the program but there doesn't seem to be any at the moment. I've got the latest Build 0281.

Call me a "control/neat/OCD freak" who wants and needs everything in his life to be almost perfect ! LOL but really, I just like my right click context menu to be nice and tidy. I don't use MagicISO that often and when I do I do all my work within the program. Therefore I don't need the MagicISO option to be present.

Anyway I hope my issue is clear, perhaps I would have to modify the registry or something ?

Thanks for all your help I appreciate it !

Hello,

I have this rather annoying problem in Vista 32bit SP2. Sometimes my right click menu (Context menu) is invisible. I do see the outline/shadow, but everything is white/blank. Restarting laptop does seem as temp fix, but I have this issue very often.

I tried ShexView, but didn't succeed.

When this occurs, I also don't get to see power down options (Start orb> that menu with Sleep/shut down/log off..)

I know it has something to do with context listers, but not sure how to proceed.

Any idea what to do?

Hi miki69,

Open up command prompt, and type:

And then when it finishes copy and paste the following into notepad and save it as a batch file (.bat):

findstr /c:"[SR]" %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log >%userprofile%\Desktop\sfcdetails.txt

And run it as an administrator

(Alternatively, you could type all of that into an elevated command prompt, but its quite long).

From here, you should now have a SFC log file on your desktop, can you upload that for us?

Ok, I've got 2 machines both with Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit on them. One machine fresh out the box today. The other a few months, anyway. On both of them I install programs that I know add additional menus to to the right click context menu. Example WinRar would be one program, 7zip another, VLC, a File Shredder Program and a few others. This is the first time I've come across this issue (between both machines), and I gotta say its annoying as hell, on my laptop it was one thing I made by, but my central system, the desktop I am currently installing everything on new to replace my old desktop is a different story. I rely heavy on those menus and not having them well its bothersome. So I am wondering if there is some special setting somewhere on Home Premium alone that I don't know about, that I can't seem to find information on this anywhere else. Or did for some reason Microsoft in all it's finest of Glory just Omit that option from the OS entirely just in Home Premium.. I have 7 Pro on another machine and this problem doesn't exist there.

So all in all losing my mind want to know one way or another. And need an answer. So if anyone knows how to resolve this that would be cool. Thanks

I have third party software like ESET NOD 32 and some freeware that installs shortcuts into my context menu which is good. They also store icons to the right of the shortcut which is bad. The various softwares don't have options to disable icons or even context menu options at all. How do I get rid of those ugly icons and keep the shortcut items?

A:Disable Context Menu Icons

Usually if the program offers no option for the context menu then it's all or nothing. You may be able to disable it either by using one of those Context Menu control utilities, or if the program has .dll files in its install folder and you have admin privileges then you may be able to do it by hand. Esp. if the names of the .dll files have "shell" in them it's a clue they are for the shell extension. As example if the .dll is named myshellext.dll you would open a command prompt with admin privilege and type:
regsvr32 /u myshellext.dll and hit Enter.

You should see a message like "unregister of myshellext.dll succeeded".

See tutuorials for how to open a command prompt with admin privilege. Or get one of the Shell Extension Control gizmos that work in Vista(if there are any.. you'd have to search the freeware sites and Vista compatibility lists etc.)

I am using Windows 10 Pro 64 bit OS on my self built system. It's been working great for years but recently I have notice when right clicking on any file in File Explorer or on the desktop it takes up to 30 seconds for the context menu to appear. I have read other posts about tweaking the graphic configuration or services. I have a Radeon R7 200 Series graphics card. I rolled back the most recent driver with no improvement. If I reboot it fixes the problem for a short while.
I use the right click often and this is unacceptable. I am thinking of a clean reinstall but others have stated that it doesn't fix the problem.

So, there's this little annoyance I've had with Windows 7. There's no "dead-space" between icons. It really only becomes an issue at two times: When I want to use the folder's context menu, and get the icon's context menu; and when I try to drag and drop something into a folder filled with folders. In the second case, I end up moving the folder into a subfolder on accident.

In any size "Icon" viewing mode, there is one or two pixels between the active areas of each icon. In "Detail" there is zero. If I want to see the folder's context menu, or drop something into the folder I am currently viewing, I have to use the 15-pixel dead space between the directory tree on the left and and first column of icons. "List" mode is better, but I don't want to use that in every folder.

I've tried increasing the space between icons, but the active area just increases along side it. I just end up with a larger hit-box for each icon. Is there anything I can do to increase the size of the dead area between icons? Or better yet, go back to the top-hat shaped active areas from older Windows?

A:Can't click between icons to get context menu.

You can use this;

Hey guys,

When I right-click files such as .rar or .doc files, the context menu used to load really slow but I found out it was due to so many applications installing their "shells" on the context menu, such as "compress, compress and email..." and the list goes on. I removed most of them through registry edits and now the context menu comes up almost instantly.

There is still one problem, ANY .exe file takes about 1 second to load the context menu when right-clicked. I've tried removing almost ALL the options in the context menu but it still didn't help. Anyone know what the problem is?

Thanks!

If Im in the empty desktop when I right click\new, the options are pretty much the same as in XP, however, if Im in a folder, any folder to begin with, the only "new" option is folder??? Whats up with that. Now, if I do create a new folder, and right click in that then all the usual options are there???
I hav done some googling and Im not the only user with this problem, but I cant seem to find an adaquate solution. I want to create new text files and MS office files in folders without having to create a new subfolder to have that option, it just seems really pointless

Right-clicking on ANYTHING takes 10-20 seconds for the menu to come up: this is so for folders and files, on my PC, external HD, network drives, and cloud drives. So probably an explorer problem?

The problem has gotten worse over time. It used to be almost instant, but then I started noticing it took maybe 5-6 seconds, then pretty soon it was 7-8, then 10-11, then 15-16, now I've had some that's 20. This is annoying as I use this feature a lot every day.

Hello TSG!

I would like to add an item to the IE7 right-click context menu. Basically, I need to add a command similar to the one provided by Dr.Web LinkChecker. By right-clicking on any link within a webpage and selecting the item (e.g. "Scan Link"), I'd like to have the link automatically inserted in this online link scanner, in a new window, without losing the original window: http://onlinelinkscan.com/

I have a relatively basic knowledge of Script writing and would need help from a skilled member to accomplish and understand this task.

Dr.Web provides this simple registry hack to add its link checker to the context menu:

There's an example for adding Google search to the IE context menu. By highlighting any word in a webpage, a new window will open and Google will search for that word automatically and show the results:

This is a totally new one to me... about a week ago, everytime I went to right-mouse click, the context menu would take a while to drop down. As of yesterday, it stopped working completely. There seems to be next to noting on this subject on the web so I came here to see if anyone has a possible solution.

The left mouse click work fine, no lag, the batteries are fully charged, the mouse works fine on another systems I have.

It is a MS Intellimouse Explorer for Bluetooth. I state this because a also have a Logitech Trackman Marble+ plugged in that does the job for me temporarily and the right mouse works fine on that one. So I suspect it could be a Bluetooth problem.

FYI, I also started having the Generic Host Server need to close and svchost.exe problems as well about a week ago. They are possibly all related to each other

Any ideas?

Hi,
I just got my new computer and am having some issues. One of them is the taskbar's right click context menu. I use this feature a lot, I've discovered, since with this new OS, it doesn't work. Or, rather, it does, but it won't stay up. I right click an item on the task bar, the menu pops up, and then when I move my pointer towards the menu to access the items listed, the menu pops back down. The only way I get to the menu is with the arrows keys. It's very frustrating. Can someone help me tell the menu to stay put? It's ridiculous to have to move my hand from the mouse to the keyboard just to make a choice on the menu. The right click menus WITHIN a program seem fine. It's just the ones on the task bar, where you see the new "Pin to the task bar" option and such.

Thanks, Phyrie

I am pretty sure this has been discussed before, its just that I cannot find any links to any previous discussions on it.

Is there any descent and recent utility out there to help me control what appears on the right-click context menu of WindowsXP SV3?

thx

A:[SOLVED] right-click context menu

Hi Mary,

ShellMenuView is a good little utility to manage the list of menu items that appears when you right-click a file or a folder in Windows.

If you're happy that this is suitable for your requirements, then please mark your thread as solved.



Cheers, Crit.

Recently whenever i right click on anything or anywhere on my computer, be it the desktop or an avi file etc, the list that should normally open instantly, takes a long time to open - this can vary from only a few seconds to 10+ seconds.
Once i have waited for the menu to open however and click off it, the next time i right click on the same point it opens instantly. I presume this is because it has cached the menu or something.

Ive had a look around the internet but couldn't find much about this problem, so any ideas are welcome!

IE9

A few minutes ago I highlighted a URL, right clicked in order to copy and the right click context menu did not open.

Unfortunately one cannot use Edit/Copy in the command bar for a URL.

I then attempted to copy random text from a web page and again no right click context menu. I was able to copy the text using Edit/Copy. I can also use Edit/Copy in notepad.

I also discovered that I have no right click context menu at all. I tried right clicking on the taskbar, the desktop, desktop icons, and in an empty space in my top command bars.

Next I tried to copy the URL using SeaMonkey. Didn't work.

It worked earlier today. I have made no changes to anything that would cause this to happen.

I really need the context menu. How do I get it back?

edit to add: I uninstalled the software for my mouse, reinstalled, didn't cure the problem. I did a google search and found an article by Microsoft which I followed but did not resolve the issue. Nothing else found that would help me.

A:Right Click Context Menu Disappeared

Hi

Are any keys sticking on your keyboard? Specifically, a stuck ALT key will do this but that would make it impossible to type the post in this forum . Tap on your ALT keys on either side of the spacebar to make sure.

Do you get the context menu when you press the menu key on your keyboard (has a picture of a context menu on it usually between the right ctrl key and the windows key)?

I'm assuming that you have tried a reboot of the system

New member, first post. As you probably guessed I have a new computer with Win 7 (Pro). During setup, I installed some utilities that I liked from the computer I used previously which runs XP Pro.

One of these is a tiny utility (11KB) called MD Folder which adds a "New Folder" option directly to the XP right-click context menu in Explorer (actually it was developed for W95/98 but worked fine on XP). It was one of those nice little tweaks that I used all the time. Unfortunately, it no longer works on Win 7. The other bad news is that I now have a right-click context menu that lists "New Folder" as a separate entry but clicking it does nothing. I realize that Win 7 already has a similar capability but it wasn't as direct a method as this utility.

I would appreciate help in getting:
1. another right-click customization to get a quick, one-step "New Folder" option that will work on Win 7 and
2. some instructions to repair the context menu to remove the current unusable choice of "New Folder" from the context menu.

For help in item 2. above, I attached the inf file (converted to a txt file so it won't run) for the "MD folder" installation which may help those who understand that coding. I imagine what I need is something to reverse the registry changes identified there. The second-to-last line of this file seems to be an uninstall instruction but I'm not sure and don't know how to use it if it is. I have been una... Read more
