    Some context menu/cleanup


    Ok so I finally got around to setting up my laptop (win10) and with installing a whole bunch of applications came a whole bunch of messy context menus. Some were removable by app and I managed to remove most of them through shellexview, shellmenuview, regedit and even Winaero Tweaker with no issue.

    There is just the few last things I was unable to work out or find info on online:

    1. Removing ''Print'', ''New''



    I managed to do this for most things, but the file types am currently struggling with are

    .odg / . odp / .ods / .odt / .rtf

    2. Changing ''Open with AIMP'' to simply just ''Open''




    3. Get rid of ''Cast to Device'' & ''Give Access too''



    Please note these ones I have taken out of the system but they show in apps (such as photoshop) when opening/saving files. Everywhere else they have gone.

    4. TeraCopy Context menu.

    Show 2 items on the context menu one being ''Teracopy...'' and the other ''New Folder with Selection''

    I found the reg locations to get rid of them

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Drive\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\lnkfile\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers

    But I actually enjoyed the ''New Folder with Selection'' Feature so I was wondering if there was a way to keep that by itself.

    Modifying the New menu is easy using this: (attached)

    Note that you can create your own template for each of the New items, should you wish.

    Other context menu entries:

    Certain default Windows context menu entries can't be removed by normal means.
    Autoruns (free from MS) comprehensively lists context menu entries along with everything that starts up with checkboxes.

    2. Changing ''Open with AIMP'' to simply just ''Open''
    I would suggest this is not a good idea, being then too vague and general. There are other programs that may create a context menu entry 'Open' and this would be confusing.

    I appreciate the program as it could come in handy, but what that does is add or remove items from the ''new'' with an arrow listing a bunch of files to create a new one, it doesn't get rid of the ''New'' in the photo I supplied that is there by itself.

    Every single application says ''open'' only for their specified files but only AIMP is doing this, it is weird, it should still open AIMP, just no need to say that, I see absolutely no reason why it can't say just open. In fact on my PC it says open and my laptop Open with AIMP so there is surely a reason why that difference exists.

    I will do anything it takes to do what I have asked.

    Now, this is amazing, and is working for the things I want (the print & new)! I will go play around and tweak the things I desire and then come back if there is anything else left. Thank you!!

    Anyone know a program to move all the right click menu items around. I mean the stupidest thing ever since windows conception is when you right click a file or whatever and want to rename it the dumb delete button is on top of it and I always hit it a lot because I do a lot of renaming and deleting files etc. So if I could move delete to the bottom and move rename higher up so they arent together...but I have used alot of right click tweakers and none will do this that I have found. It supposedly has something to do with how the right click menu is coded, so each section seperated by the bars are either baked in and cant be tweaked..
