Is there any software that can remove things from my right-click context menu?

vineedcool November 2, 2012

Recently I installed too much software, and with that software came the right-click context menus. Now whenever I open my menu I see a long list of unwanted applications. Can any of you suggest some context menu remover type of software?

    Last versions of CCleaner has this feature. Go to "Tools -> Startup" and "Context Menu" is the last tab. From there, right-click and you have more choices like "Disable", "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:

    Most apps allow you to add to the context but not remove. The ones that do remove items are usually a little complicated.
    Write a list of what you want removed from your right click and I will write a walkthrough telling you how to do it.
    I say write a list because there are a few apps that you can disable the context menu entries within the app.

        Do you have a better solution then?
