Windows 7: Context menu too crowded

Context menu too crowded

Hello Forum
Lately my context menus became too crowded, I used two tools: "shell extention manager" and
"shell extention view", but could not find the real text / sentence which appears on the context menu.
I do not want to make guesswork mistakes (in the registry) that cannot be repaired.
So if you can help me how to get rid of some entries in the context menu.
As examples I here attach some screenshots from menus pointing at a folder, picture file and plain file.
Thanks
Moti

Hey Moti,

I recommend using 3rd party software for that eg.

Context Menu Editor: Add remove Context Menus in Windows

Otherwise, search the settings of BSPlayer and the other programs for something like "Add items to menu", something like that.

Let us know

Hello
Thanks for the answer. First, the problem is not BS player context menu, its the rest entries which do not know what created them. However, I downloaded the "Context Menu Editor" as recommended above and ran it (as admin), but in the "remove" option it found nothing, not even one item !
I will keep on searching for an answer.
Thank again.

Could you state which ones exactly? Which ones do you want removed, that would be more helpful

Run regedit to open the Registry Editor and navigate to the following key:
(BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL WHILE IN THE REGISTRY!!)
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers
Here you need to simply delete the keys you donít want. There are other registry locations too where this data may be stored.
How did you get so many entries. Never seen it that crowded.
Good luck.

"That's it."? That's a book. I think your registry is the easiest and quickest way to go as I said above.
But what do I know?

Sorry. Didn't see this had 10 pages of help already.
