    Remove "Pin to Start" Context Menu for Files in Windows 10?


    Looking to remove the "pin to start" context menu from Windows 10, I use startmenu replacement and that option is very much in the way.

    There was a way for win 8.1
    Files in Windows 8

    But reg files changed, so anyone got a Win 10 version of it?

    Cheers.

    After using RegScanner, I found getting rid of the folllowing did it for me (backup first):

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\AllFilesystemObjects\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\{a2a9545d-a0c2-42b4-9708-a0b2badd77c8}]
    
    [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\AllFilesystemObjects\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\{a2a9545d-a0c2-42b4-9708-a0b2badd77c9}]
