    context menu change, unable to find in registry, possibly in DLL?


    please look at the screenshot two things I wish to change (context menu in screenshot is from Drive only, ie. C:\ D:\ E:\ etc, not on directories but actual drives).

    1. text for "open command window here" to something shorter but nothing turns up in registry so could be in a dll file. could someone tell me which one it is so I can try to use something like resource hacker or hex editor to edit them?

    2. I wish to remove the option "configure shadow copies" from context menu entirely. I have tried to disable the service for shadow copy and it does remove it but it borks some reflect macrium features that I need so it's not an option. I tried searching in registry and found the VSSshellEX so is this in another .DLL that will need to be changed?

    could someone with more knowledge please share some experience as I dont wish to touch anything until I have a bit more info, thank you!

    Hi, some of what you want to do should be possible with one of many tools.
    Try the venerable ContextEdit (still valid) - here I give an example of entries associated with 'Drive' as I think you're showing:
    context menu change, unable to find in registry, possibly in DLL?-untitled.png
    Download ContextEdit 1.2

    Those two options have been added at some stage - using that tool you should be able to disable entries, and if you try right clicking, you may find an appropriate means to edit the name shown.


    This might be of interest: (removal included)
    Open command window here - Add in Windows 10
    Open command window here as administrator - Add in Windows 10[1]=Context%20Menu

    I already have context edit, didn't really help. Filemenu tool shows a bit more info but unable to remove for w/e reason unsure though they could see it. I got the info from File menu and brute force it in registry, took permission of keys and just force delete them.

    I guess sometimes some keys MS just dont want us to touch, kinda silly.

    Thank you for your reply.....

    You'll just have to find a tool that meets your needs. As I don't use those programs, I can't be specific. Good luck.

    heh well it was solved. had to look up @Brink and his removing "open command window here" registry from 7forum and went from there.

    thanks for helping out with ideas.
