    Remove "Cast to Device" from Right Click Menu


    Hello,

    I'm in the process of clearing up my right click menus after installing Windows 10. I found guides for all menu items I wanted to get rid of here on TenForums (Yay!), but I can't find a guide on how to remove the "Cast to Device" item.
    Is there a way to remove it (for folders and files)?

    Hello!

    Same problem here. Seemingly no solution yet to this on the entire internet ...

    ... until now:

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Shell Extensions\Blocked]
    "{7AD84985-87B4-4a16-BE58-8B72A5B390F7}"="Play To menu"
    Spent quite some hours engineering this, so I hope some people find it useful!

    Hate to bump, but how do I enter this? Haven't done much with regedit, and making a new key and string with these values didn't help

    Copy paste into Notepad > give it a name such as RemoveCast.reg > save as all files

    To activate go to default save place(usually Documents) > find it > double click it > give permission

    That's it

    This reg key doesn't work for me. This context menu entry reappears very quickly.

    Solution: use ShellExView and disable the "Play To menu" entry.
