Preferred Solution: context menu-editors that can remove ANY item ?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

This is a very strange situation: The folder context menu shows multiple instances of VTSync, see screen grab. This is a legitimate program, but really has no place in the context menu. What is so frustrating is that I cannot remove it!

The item seems to get placed in the context menu when the program is installed. Earlier today, I uninstalled the program; removed all entries for it from the registry, then reinstalled the program. Prior to uninstalling, it appeared three times in the context menu, now it appears four times.

I also tried the programs 'Shell Extension View' and 'Shell Menu View', but I could find no reference to VTSync in either.

Can you please offer a suggestion for getting rid of these unwanted entries?

I have spent enough time googlin, I give up.
My best guess is, this is a recent update change.
I dont recall ever having the option to create a new contact or journal document which is nice, nor do I know what program I may have installed that did this. But I would really like to know, how I can replace new bitmap image option in that space.
I learned that context menu is relevant to in what context we are referring. In this case, right click any blank space either on your desktop or in a folder and hover over new. The option for a new bitmap image does not appear in the New Item toolbar anywhere in the Pictures Library either. I recall being able to right click a blank space in most any folder and create a new .bmp image file.
Where did it go?
Better yet, how do I get it back. mspaint.exe exists where it is supposed to and sfc /scannow yielded no anomalies. Typical online suggestions for how to tweak the registry dont seem to apply to windows 8.1 pro.
Again, I dont think my windows is broken, just changed.

I'd like to change the name of "Screen resolution" item in right click menu and it works... by the time.
I've been searching for this name whole C: partition and in the registry, and I found it there:
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Local Settings\MuiCache\28\5DB2B7D1], more specifically in the @C:\Windows\System32\display.dll,-4 file as the registry says. So, I double clicked on this value and changed data from "Screen resolution" to just "Resolution" and it works.

Few minutes later I've installed a program, and the name changed itself back to "Screen resolution". I don't remember if it happens during installation or just after but it's not happening in every application I'm installing, like the last one TeamViewer I installed today, and still have "Resolution" as I want.
So, I go back to the registry and want change it to "Resolution" again and what I see is that the catalog 28 has a new name 2B. Everything else is still the same (except the "Resolution" name too ofc)
Anyway, changed the name back to what I want and it works again. Thought it wasn't changed properly by my fault but I pissed me off when I installed graphics driver and Kaspersky and the name was back to original but this time there was not 28 or 2B catalog in the tree but a new one - 4F, next time it was 48 and right now it's 11E.

Hello,

I found another bug in Windows Seven. I feel like I have more bugs with 7057 and 7068 than I had with 7000 and earlier.

I will probably solve this problem by rebooting, but I never reboot so this is annoying.

If I right click and choose an item in a context menu, the item stays, there is no way to remove it, and it is at the front of all other windows.

It can be removed by starting a game or switching to Win7 Basic, but it reappears as soon as I click an item in context menu.

Note: The problem is not for all context menu. I saw it appears in Explorer, Skype, Setpoint... Not in Firefox and some other programs.

If you right-click on an image in IE7, the context menu lists "e-mail picture" right under "save" as option. I don't use the "e-mail picture" option, and if I mistakenly click on it my computer usually locks up. Is there a way to disable or remove the e-mail picture option?

The only other option I use in that menu is "properties" about 1% of the time.

I have googled this many times over the last year, and have never been able to find a solution. (Although I *did* find some posts of others asking the same question). Any help provided would be much appreciated.

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:
Code:

REGEDIT4
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\MenuExt\Scan with Dr.Web]
@="[URL]http://www.drweb.com/online/drweb-online-fr.html[/URL]"
"Contexts"=dword:00000022


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:
Registry hack:

Code:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

Description

Shell Extensions are in-process COM objects which extends the abilities of Windows operating system. Most shell extensions are automatically installed by the operating system, but there are also many other applications that install additional shell extension components. For example: If you install WinZip on your computer, you'll see a special WinZip menu when you right-click on a Zip file. This menu is created by adding a shell extension to the system.
The ShellExView utility displays the details of shell extensions installed on your computer, and allows you to easily disable and enable each shell extension.

ShellExView can be used for solving context-menu problems in Explorer environment. For more information, read the following article: Right-click is slow or weird behavior caused by context menu handlers

I've been cleaning up my context menu and I have it right where I want it except for one item which I have been unable to find out how to delete regarding text (.txt) files.

I use UltraEdit as my text editor and have set it as the default program to use for text files. When I right click on a text file there are two selections displayed that will open the text document for editing - OPEN and EDIT. If I click on OPEN the default program (UltraEdit) indeed opens with the text file displayed and ready to edit as desired. However if I click on EDIT, Notepad opens with the file displayed and ready to edit. It's no big thing but this will gnaws at me until "I get it the way I want it" and I want the EDIT selection gone.

I can't figure out and haven't found it on the web how to keep EDIT from appearing on the contaxt menu nor can I determine how EDIT is being associated with Notepad. If it insists on being there why isn't it using UltraEdit like I specified...Windows appears to be obfuscating that information but there has to be a way to do this?

Sorry if the title is difficult to understand. The issue is unknown and unheard to me, and I simply did not know how else to describe it.

Here's what happens:

- I right click an item or selection to open context menu
- Context menu opens but it is as if it were only a placeholder, greyed out (enlarge the image to see that greyd out menu)



- Moving pointer on top of this greyed out context menu shows it normally and lets me to choose a menu item



- The chosen menu item stays on desktop, on top of everything else





- "Ghost" menu item disappears only when logging out or changing screen resolution
- This happens sometimes immediately after booting up, sometimes it doesnt in days even if the rig is on all the time except hibernating periods. If I temporarily fix the issue with resolution change, it happens as soon as I open any context menu next time.

Thanks. Hopefully somebody has an idea. Rig is the laptop described in my sys specs.

My hard drive failed a few months back. New HDD, reinstalled Windows 7. Reinstalled programs and games. Everything except Windows Media Player was fine.

Windows Media Player (12) was giving me a lot of problems with playlists. Any time I right click an avi, mp3, mp4, mkv, etc the item I'm adding to a playlist is added with some weird name and not the actual, displayed file name from Windows Explorer view of the file.

For example: A file named "s01e01 - TVShowEpisodeName.mp4" is now added to the playlist as "TVShowName.S01E01.HDTV.x264-KILLERS[ettv]" instead of just "s01e01 - TVShowEpisodeName".

Hoping to fix the problem by uninstalling and reinstalling, I uninstalled WMP 12.

When I reinstalled WMP 12, nothing had changed. Worse, now when I right click on a MKV movie file, there is no longer an option to "Add to Windows Media Player list" like I used to have and that I still get with MP4 et all movies.

Can anyone tell me how to fix this context menu issue and/or how to get WMP 12 to only show filenames in playlists? I've been all over Google for weeks now and I can't resolve either of these issues. I'm finally at my wit's end and have to ask someone...

For example: A file named "s01e01 - TVShowEpisodeName.mp4" is now added to the playlist as "TVShowName.S01E01.HDTV.x264-KILLERS[ettv]" instead of just "s01e01 - TVShowEpisodeName".

Hoping to fix the problem by uninstalling and reinstalling, I uninstalled WMP 12.

When I reinstalled WMP 12, nothing had changed. Worse, now when I right click on a MKV movie file, there is no longer an option to "Add to Windows Media Player list" like I used to have and that I still get with MP4 et all movies.

Can anyone tell me how to fix this context menu issue and/or how to get WMP 12 to only show filenames in playlists? I've been all over Google for weeks now and I can't resolve either of these issues. I'm finally at my wit's end and have to ask someone...

Many thanks in advance.

A:Windows Media Player 12; context menu & playlist item names problems

Context Menu Solution
1. Reinstall K-Lite Codec Pack (I used Mega) and the .mkv files get their "Add to Windows Media Player list" context menu back.

Playlist File Name Workaround
1. Display the Playlist in the Library (not the list as it's playing in WMP).
2. Right click the funky file names and rename to the desired Playlist name.

Solved well enough for me.

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 !

Jordan

Hello Jordan,

You can use either ShellExView or ShellMenuView to make disabling that context menu item easy.

I'm trying to remove the Personalize option of the desktop context menu via GPO - if I use the Microsoft.Personalization object in the User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Control Panel\Hide Specified Control Panel items GPO then the item is removed from control panel as expected, but the menu item remains in the desktop context menu and clicking on it throws a generic "Unspecified Error" pop upIs there a better way to achieve this?

I modify and clean up the start menu entries on all my machines, and it's an irritation having to construct shortcuts to a program file that you are looking at in Explorer by-

Highlight and copy the folder address from Explorer address bar
Paste into the target shortcut address
Manually type a "\"
Highlight and copy the .exe file name
Paste (append) into the shortcut target address
What I want is a right-click menu item to copy the FULL PATH of the currently selected file to the clipboard. Just like the "Copy link location" menu function in Firefox.
Note this is not the same as the normal "Create Shortcut" option which creates a shortcut file in the current folder, I just want the path text on the clipboard.
Sounds simple but i'm not much of a registry hacker. Any idea how to do this?

Hi Coline,

There may be a way to do it without adding 3rd party tools but a quick search through SevenForums Tutorials found this:

I am running Win 7/SP1. I have a Sony Blu-Ray Burner BWU-500S. When I right click on the drive I no longer have a format option in the context menu. Does anyone know how I can restore/recreate the format item? I just recently did a clean install of Win 7 & have been in the process of reloading all my software. Everything concerning my drive was just fine, but somwhere something has gotten corrupted. I am not running any particular DVD burning software either.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Hello Jim,

For a CD/DVD/Blu-Ray drive, you will not have the Format option available unless you have a blank unformatted disc in the drive.

This is to redress the issue:  The existing Answer refers to an external non-Microsoft website for a solution, and also states it doesn't guarantee the solution will work.  This site wants us to download an executable to fix the issue.  Me,
I'd rather poke my own nose into the registry thank you very much.
Well someone please from Microsoft Answer with the necessary changes to the Registry to fix this issue?
Since I know "Microsoft doesn't support the Registry", or at least I've read that too many times to count, and believe it to be true.  I'd just like to add that the
"Include in Library" context menu registry entries must have a vulnerability, since I know I didn't change it; and based on the number of people who in the past have had the issue, so please... Include the necessary
warnings if one must "Microsoft does not support the registry"  "Warning: Modifying they registry may cause your computer to stop working."  and last but not least:  "REGISTRY:  DO NOT ENTER!  HERE BE DRAGONS!"
Truth is I set up my libraries when I first got Windows 7; however, I haven't needed to add any libraries until now.  I finally realized that I could aggregate several folders of some new projects I'm working.

Would someone post the location of the pertinent entries, and what is needed to allow the
"Include in Library" context menu to work?

I installed 7-zip to handle compressed files which makes the windows 7 build in one redundant. But I can't seem to get rid of the "extract..." context menu entry. It only appears when right click dragging. What are the required registry modifications? Thanks.

Hello Fab, and welcome to Seven Forums.

If you mean to open the Recycle Bin, then you might see if this below may work for you for adding it to your desktop context menu.

If you like, edit the .reg file in the tutorial below to help modify your context menu with it.

I have 2 issues. I don't know if they are related somehow.

1. I installed PrivaZer and deleted it. It still shows up on the right click context menu. I tried to reinstall it and deleted it again. I still have that problem. I even restarted the computer. How can I get rid of the entry?

2. When I try to click on/install some downloaded .exe files, I get a message: "Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file." It hasn't happened with other file types yet.

I scanned for viruses and it didn't find anything. I wasn't sure what to do. Thank you.

A:Context menu item problem and accessing files problem

When you said you installed it then deleted it. Do you mean you uninstalled it ? If you deleted then there are left over to be cleaned, You must uninstall not delete.

Please download: ShellExView - Shell Extension Manager For Windows . Right click and run as Admin, locate the extension in question. If you double click it, it will tell you where it is stored on the HD, you can disable first then delete.

I was wondering whether it is possible to remove the 'Cut' entry from the Windows 7 right-click context menu. If so, how would I do this?

Thanks

A:Is it possible to remove 'Cut' from Win 7 context menu?

Do you want this for all context menus or of some specific application? Many applications have a context menu with a cut entry and ultimately it is the application that controls their own context menus, usually with no options for customization. I don't see this as being a practical thing for general use. For a specific application - maybe.
