How can I remove desktop context menu entries?

Martin Ristovski January 23, 2013

I uninstalled XLaunchpad from my computer using Revo Uninstaller and doing an advanced uninstall, by removing all related leftover files, folders and registry entries. After the uninstall finished, I rebooted my PC just for the sake of it. Then I noticed that the context menu entry on the desktop is still there. Can you please help me to remove it?

    You can also use CCleaner. It's under Tools --> StartUp; then choose the Context Menu tab. Highlight the entry then Disable or Delete.

    Glary Utilities has a “Context Menu Manager”, which allows you to disable or enable these entries with check-boxes, very easy to use. It is divided in 3 tabs: Files & Folders (this is the main one), New, and Send To. That tool is under the category “Optimize & Improve”.
    I uploaded a screenshot of that tool here:

    There are a few apps that allow you to edit or remove Right Click Context Menu entries although I prefer to edit the registry.
    This is one such app:
    Try it and see if it finds the context entry if not post back and I will give you a few more links or explain how to do this through the registry editor assuming you are comfortable with that.
