    registry pros - remove "copy as path" from extended context menu?


    so I wanted to add the function to my "non" extended context menu. After doing so i not only realized its a bit different (has an icon and is worded as "copy path" not "copy as path") but it also adds the same entry to the extended context menu.

    This leaves you with 2 (non identical) items in extended menu to accomplish the same thing.

    Now if its not already been made obvious, I dislike redundancy, clutter, and am moderately OCD.

    I want to remove the "copy AS path" entry from the extended context menu. (the one that is there by default).

    Its the LAST item on context menu to-do list

    Hi, these seem the relevant registry entries. Back up before trying anything..

    Bear in mind that, like Cut. Copy, Delete, Rename etc in the context menu these are likely to be provided by the OS in a manner that does not allow you to modify them unless you fancy recompiling or hacking Windows dlls.

    Yea that's kinda what I figured. Unfortunately (and I mean that sincerely - one of life's regrets!). That's beyond my pay grade

    Thank you for all your help/replies/posts
