Question Editing Context Menu

Hi there, I would like some help with editing the context menu which shows up when right mouse clicking on files such as image files audio files etc. The list I have showing now is just too long, and I am having to use the up/down "arrows" to get to the menu items that I want work with. I have looked into a couple of small apps that can edit context menu's, but I'm not sure what to edit in them.
Any help would be very much appreciated.

Hey buddy how are you??

On 98se the menu entries are in the registry,mine are here:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AllFilesystemObjects\shellex\Con textMenuHandlers

I dunno if yours are in the same spot,if not do a reg search for "send to" thats how I just found where they are... (I knew it was in the reg but didnt know which key it is)

Good luck

Windows key + R

RUN

regedit (hit OK)

navigate to the following key:

"HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT

ContextMenuHandlers

Right click the one(s) you don't want and delete

I have 3 all together Murf.....

MOVE TO
COPY TO

Which is strange because those 2 DO NOT show up in my right click menu!!

The only one that shows up is in my other key I posted above. "SEND TO" so could I delete these 2 from this other key??

You do have "Send to" in your right click menu right?

Thanks. I have found out that the app CCleaner has a feature that let's us edit the context menu, so for now I am playing around with that until I have the menu set up to how i like it.

Good im glad its so easy for ya!!!

I searched my whole reg and found several "contextmenuhandlers" keys. (Diff stuff on each)

I think the SEND TO and COPY TO is for a file association editing program I have...... (WINFILE) but im not sure...... Ill have to open the program again and see if those 2 are there on the right click menu....
