    Can't Remove "Send To" & "Pin To Start" From Context Menu


    Anyone knows why when i remove "Send To" & "Pin To Start" context menu entries from registry, windows automatically creates new one's after restart. Never had such problem in 8, and it's driving me nuts!!!!!

    Thanks for help!

    Thanks for reply, Send To removes using reg file, but returns after PC reboot, Pin to start isn't removed.....

    Possibly some utility program you may have installed adding it back?

    You can edit the .reg files in the tutorials to see all the locations for them to help.

    Reg key - "[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\{a2a9545d-a0c2-42b4-9708-a0b2badd77c8}]" is deleted, but "Pin To Start" still apears in context menu. Maybe there is another key in win10?

    Search for {a2a9545d-a0c2-42b4-9708-a0b2badd77c8} in Registry Editor using the Find and Find Next feature to see if there may be able more under a ContextMenuHandlers key.

    This will not affect the Start menu context menu though.

    Only the ones found in a ContextMenuHandlers key.

    I would highly recommend to create a restore point first. This way if it messes something up, you could do a quick system restore using the restore point to undo it.
