Removing Unnecessary Context Menu Options

Jan 29, 2016

I am trying to find a way to remove context menu options from Windows, options that I am never ever going to use. For example, I can right-click on the desktop, navigate to Graphics options > Resolution, and I am greeted with this:

Customization :: Black Context Menu For Taskbar And Old Context Menu For Desktop

Dec 15, 2015

Today I got an update, and I noticed afterwards that the Windows 10 context menu when you right click the desktop went back to the old version and not the Windows 10 version. Also, the context menu for right clicking in the taskbar turned black in the background. Not sure what changed and how to make things the way I remember.

Customization :: Removing Selections From Right Click Menu?

Dec 14, 2015

I see people wanting to add stuff to the right click, I'd like to remove some stuff. When you pop up the right click menu, for some folders it's HUGE, and it makes it difficult to find the stuff you'd actually want to use.

pintostartscreen - I'd like this gone from the Recycle Bin. I keep hitting it when emptying, it's just annoying.

Scan with Windows Defender - I'd like this gone everywhere.

Include in Library - Ditto for this one, don't use it.

Cast to Device - Yep, useless to me as well.

Shared Folder Synchronization - Never use it, be gone!

Is there some 3rd party utility to manage all these additions?

There are also applications that stick extra stuff in there that I never need, it would be great to manage those as well.

Apps :: Removing Dead Icons From Start Menu

Oct 7, 2015

After disabling and uninstalling Cortana, Edge and others as well as Search I ended up with 2 dead icons in the All apps menu one for Search and one for Edge. When I drag the Search icon to the desktop it's named as:

@{Microsoft.Windows.Cortana_1.4.8.176_neutral_neutral_cw5n1h2txyewyms-resource--Microsoft.Windows.Cortana-resources-TileDisplayName} but not sure I want to start deleting various reg entries where this shows. I also tried in all the usual places where the shortcuts are supposed to be but nothing worked and the icons are still there so how they can be removed if at all. It's more of a cosmetic problem as I have no issues with Windows otherwise...

Context Menu Sometimes Works And Sometimes Does Not

Aug 7, 2015

When I right click on something to get the context menu, it sometimes works and sometimes does not.

Here are three images showing how it appears. As you can see, there is a completely variable response as to what appears. I am using the standard Windows 10 theme in a completely fresh install (not an upgrade) on a new hard disk.

Right Click Context Menu

Sep 15, 2015

I just upgraded my laptop from windows 7 to windows 10 and everything went very smoothly on the outside but I'm finding some hiccups as I go along. When I right click the start menus I do get the context menu with all the shortcuts to various apps. But when I click on, say for instance, Control Panel, instead of going to "Control Panel" I get a dialog box opening saying "Express Zip Free Version" This free version of Express Zip is licensed for non-commercial use only; Please confirm that:" then there are two options to click on and I'll only include the first one for sake of brevity, "Certify that this program is for non-commercial use only". Why in the name of all that is good does this dialog open and not a program from the context menu?

Inconsistent Shell Context Menu

Sep 26, 2015

I noticed something peculiar this morning. The Explorer right-click context menu is inconsistent on what it displays.

For example, when I right-clicked on one folder, it displays the "Add to Windows Media Player List" and "Play with Windows Media Player" options.

However, when I right-clicked on another folder, these options are absent.

Whether these options appear in the context menu seems to be entirely arbitrary. About half of the folders have the options, and the rest do not.

Customization :: Add Shut Down To Desktop Context Menu

Jul 29, 2015

I finished upgrading my laptop to Window 10 Pro and I got Microsoft Money Sunset and Frontpage 2003 working. So I am happy.

An old problem came back, after a shutdown, the system "resumes" instead of starting without the option of allowing me to get into the bios. I had a fix for that for Windows 8.1 but when I tried that for Windows 10, let just say I was glad I had created a restore point.

So if your are listening Brink will you be updating your registry fix for Windows 10?
