A lot of programs you install will add themselves to the right-click menu of your files and/or folders. And most times, you have no choice in the matter and, as a result, your right-click menu can get very long with added items you don’t even use

☺To remove items:-

> Goto run and type “regedit”  (w/o quotes)
> press enter, now the registry editor will open….
>  Open this path “HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT*shellexContextMenuHandlers”

> Click the the + sign next to the ContextMenuHandlers key, to expand it.
Now you will see some of the programs that have added items to your right-click menu. Simply delete the program keys you don’t want.
Ya. It’s that simple.

☺To add some items


> open registry as above
> Let’s Notepad as an example of an item you’d like to add to the right click menu of all your files or folders.

For folders, go to this key:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTFolder

Click the + sign next to Folder and expand it so that the Shell key is visible. Right click the Shell key and choose New>Key and name the key Notepad or whatever else you’d prefer (whatever the key is named is what will appear in the right-click menu). Now right click the new key you made and create another key named Command. Then, in the right hand pane, double click “Default” and enter Notepad.exe as the value.
Exit the registry, refresh, and right click any folder. Notepad should now be on the context menu.
