When I right click on a file icon, I get a pull down menu with a lot of
choices - where is the "folder" that contains all of the choices - there is
one I wish to remove.

The choices are quick view, open with, open, quick view, etc. (this is not
the sendto folder.) Note that quick view is in there TWICE and I want to
remove one of them.

"ContextEdit", Version 1.2, in it's own words:
............Start.............
DESCRIPTION:
ContextEdit lets you control which items appear on your context
menu--the menu that appears when you right-click on an item in Windows
Explorer. The context menu often contains numerous rarely-used commands.
These commands come from one of two places: shell commands stored within
the system Registry, and context menu handlers. The source of the menu
item is transparent to the end-user, but still has an impact. Windows
Explorer lets you add or remove simple shell commands, but gives you no
control over context menu handlers. ContextEdit lets you control both
types of context menu items. It also allows you to disable context menu
items without removing them entirely. Another unique feature is the
ability to add shell commands to all files regardless of type, or to all
files without an associated program.
...........End...............

http://www.pcmag.com/ Has many, many great utilities: BHOCop, COA2,
ContextEdit, Crackup, DiskAction, EndItAll2, Folders, HDValet, InCtrl5,
ListZapper, RegDetective, RegEdit+, StartupCop, WinTidy, etc. Now,
suddenly, there is a subscription fee at PCMag, but, it's worth it,
especially if you can get the whole bundle that is there.

..........Start..................
Yearly billing $19.97
Yearly billing (For PC Magazine subscribers) $14.97
Monthly billing (limit 3 downloads/month) $4.97
..........End...................

You may try Google, but do you really want to download from any odd
site?

Where in the registry - and what do the "commands" look like?

and context menu handlers.

I have hear of "shell commands" before, but again how do *I* make any

You could do it in the registry. I'd suggest you dump that thought and
do it with the program (ContextEdit)

It's just an introduction, but it should get you started -

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/libr...

Extending Shortcut Menus

"Right-clicking an object on Microsoft Windows 95 and later systems usually
pops up a shortcut menu. This menu contains a list of commands that the user
can select to perform various actions on the object. This section is an
introduction to shortcut menus for file system objects."

It looks like dadiOH came up with an alternative place to get
ContextEdit, as well as an alternative app. I tend to agree with him
about the complexities involved, but Richards has an URL that may afford
an explanation of it. Maybe Richards is different, but before I engage
into intensive study to solve your duplicate QuikView, I'll want to know
the apps didn't easily solve it first.

Do you see two of them at...?...

"START, Settings, Folder Options, File Types tab"

....is likely the first thing Richards will want to know.
