Context Menu?

Recommended Posts

atari37    0

Is it possible to edit the context menu for the desktop?

That is, When I right-click the desktop and go to New, I get the list of new file types I can create. How do I delete some of the file types on this menu. I have some file extensions I can't seem to recall adding. This causes my New menu to take about 3 minutes to pop up.

Any help on how to edit this menu will be greatly appreciated.

Have a look here in the registry, Bitmap as an example:

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.bmp\ShellNew]

So you have a huge list of "." something something something files like...

.a52

.aac

.ac3

.aca

.ace

And so on, theres TONS of them.

Open ".bmp" and you'll see it has another sub-key called "ShellNew"

Just delete that "ShellNew" sub-key.

Thats the impression I get from this anyway:

Free "Power Toy" TweakUI from MS has all you need - look under templates and de-activate or remove those you don't need

BTW - 3 minutes to launch the context menu, even with a lot of "new" file templates, is way too long. Does your machine have spyware issues or is it underpowered?
