Is there anyway to remove items from the right click
context menu? Specifically I would like to remove certain
items from the menu that comes up when I right-click on a
video file. The items from the menus I want to remove are
"Add to Now Playing List", "Add to Playlist...", "Add to
Sync List", and "Add to Burn List". I would also like to
remove the "Send To" item from the right-click menu. I
can't imagine I'll ever use any of these items, so I would
like to get rid of them to clear up some clutter.

I poked around in
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations\, but nothing in
there helped me. Any help is much appreciated.

IMHO, the *Send To* is one of the most useful thing there!

thats the hard way try this.


Leave my context menu alone! If you just let it go wild, every program in the world wants to install some option there. Windows Media Player not only puts itself there, but integrates itself throughout the shell. Actually removing this integration is surprisingly easy!

Remove WMP Integration:

1. Click Start
2. Click Run
3. Type in regsvr32 /u wmpshell.dll
4. Click Enter

Easy!
