    Create a restore point. Back up and delete the items shown in your post #71 above. See whether the unwanted item will disappear.

    If you notice in #71 that it shows the command is listed with each one and all of them contain "Admin". The reason I don't want to go through the process of deleting them is that I have to change "permission" on them and that is a task with all that there are.

    User PowerRun to delete them. You don't have to change the permission.

    PowerRun v1.4 (Run with highest privileges)

    Use it only if you know what you are doing.

    Before I do this, let me say this is only showing up when holding down the Shift+right click menu. If I just right click, I get "Open command (Admin)" and "Open PowerShell window here as administrator" only. It is possible that I am not understanding what is happening.

    I just tried PowerRun and got this back:

    Upload the .reg file as an attachment.

    OpenCommand.reg

    I left the header off of the first try, but it gave me the usual permission failure with the second try with PowerRun.

    I just ran the reg file a second time and it was accepted, so it appears you have to get control of the registry, close it and then reopen it for PowerRun to work.

    Did the unwanted menu item disappear after the REG file was imported?

    I don't know what is going on, I tried running the file again with PowerRun and it failed because of permissions. The only way I see to make this work is to do it manually, and I don't think I want to go through that for 10 entries. Let's just leave it as another MS bug and move on.

    Thanks for the help.

    You need not run the file. Just do the following:

    1. Close Registry Editor.
    2. Run PowerShell and click on the Registry Editor icon on the toolbar.
    3. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Drive\shell\
    4. Right-click on the unwanted key and select "Delete".

    If it works, do the same to other unwanted keys. You don't need an REG file at all.
