    How to remove items from Explorer right-click "New" menu?

    Hi Guys,

    Despite a bit of careful Googling I can't seem to find a simple answer to this:

    How do I remove items form the right-click menu in Explorer?

    For example (see the attached pic) I want to remove items like "Compressed Folder" and "Contact"

    Click image for larger version.

    There is a free tool ShellMenuNew from that does just that.
    I use it for years now.
