    How to remove 'Open MS-DOS prompt' from folder Context Menu in Win10 ?


    Registry search for 'MS-DOS prompt' is fruitless. I have tried 3rd Party programs without success : CCleaner, Glary Utilities, Winaero Tweaker and Shellexview. Any other options ?

    Hello Sebastian, :)

    If you like, export the keys below from your registry as .reg files, and upload them here. I'll be happy to take a look to see if I may be able to spot this context menu for you, and post back a .reg file that will remove it.

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Drive

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\LibraryFolder

    I found these two registry keys below in your .reg files that include values for opening a command prompt. The .reg file below will delete them, and should remove the context menu for you.

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell\cmd

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Drive\shell\cmd


    Remove.reg

    Yeah, it would be very similar. There are just a few ways on how it could have been added, but luckily it's usually pretty easy to spot. :)

    Will all this affect PowerShell that usually hides the Command Prompt icon in later updates?

    Sad to say neither of the registry patches removed 'Open MS-DOS Prompt' from the context menu - neither Samuria's nor Brink's.

    No. This would be a separate context menu.

    Sebastion,

    Please go ahead and post a screenshot showing the context menu to see if its location on the context menu may help ID what registry key it could be in.

    Is this context menu item only available when you right click on a folder, or also available when you right click on a drive and/or folder background?
