Windows 7: Context Menu Create Shortcut

Context Menu Create Shortcut

I have ran out of places to look. I have revamped my right click context menu to the way I need it but have one issue I cannot find registry solution for. I need "create shortcut" removed from the context menu. Cannot find anything in the registry for this. Any ideas?

Look at # 9 in this New Context Menu - Remove & Restore Default Menu Items

Already checked #9. It removes the create shortcut from the right click "new" context menu but not from the primary right click context menu you get when you right click on a desktop icon or on a folder.

Start > in the search bxo, type shell:sendto > Enter > right column, select Desktop (create shortcut), then right click at it > click Delete.

Refer back to my #3 reply. Does not remove "Create Shortcut" from main context menu. Only removes it from send to menu.

Not that knowledgeable on regedit but Resource hacker can do it .

Here is a similar discussion : Remove "Create Shortcut" from file and folder context menu? .

Arc, followed the directions on using Resource Hacker and Windows 7 file replacer which did alter the shell32.dll.mui but did not resolve the problem.

I restored then took ownership and permissions of the pertaining folders and files. Using Resource Hacker, I removed "MENUITEM "Create &shortcut", 28688, MFT_STRING, MFS_ENABLED", backspaced once to eliminate the blank line then complied script. Xd out of everything and rebooted. Using Resource Hacker, I verified that the above line was gone and it is.
216 MENUEX
LANGUAGE LANG_ENGLISH, SUBLANG_ENGLISH_US
{
POPUP "", 32768, MFT_STRING, MFS_ENABLED, 0
{
MENUITEM "&Delete", 28689, MFT_STRING, MFS_ENABLED
MENUITEM "Rena&me", 28690, MFT_STRING, MFS_ENABLED
MENUITEM "P&roperties", 28691, MFT_STRING, MFS_ENABLED

}
However, the "create shortcut" is still present in the context menu so this did not resolve my issue.

Maybe I am taking you literally , but as you said, after compiling script, you are to save it on your desktop as shell32.dll.mui . Now you are to replace it in the en-US folder in SysWOW64 folder , and then reboot .

Is it what you have done ?

That is what I done when I used the Resource Hacker and Windows 7 file replacer, saved it to desktop then use Windows 7 File replacer to replace it. Did not solve the problem. So I then went the direct route, made the changes to the file, compiled it and saved it the en-US folder. Did not save it to desktop as changes can be done and saved without ever leaving Resource Hacker but only if you have taken ownership and set permissions on the folder/file. However, this did not resolve the issue either.

Yes, same has happened here as well. Neutron16 says if not a fresh install there may be 2 more copies of the .dll in the c:\windows\winsx subfolder. I have 10,298 subfolders there.
