    Hello Brink :)

    Thank you very much for your (as always) great advices!

    I applied the Remove.reg and it worked like a charm.

    Just wandering: the .reg practically deleted the two registry keys igfxcui and igfxDTCM, am I correct?

    Thanks a lot again.

    You're most welcome Lamberto. I'm glad it could help. :)

    That's correct. The remove .reg file will delete the igfxcui and igfxDTCM keys to remove the context menu.

    I updated to latest intel driver on my surface pro 4. I don't have the two desktop context items described here. I tried to add them with the .reg and it didn't work.

    Hello jvook,

    Yeah, it won't work unless it was originally there.

    If you like, export the key below from your registry as a .reg file, and upload it here. It'll show what you have instead for the Intel context menu item.

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers
