Windows 7: Can't fully edit context menu

Can't fully edit context menu

Been able to zap some items from the New context menu, but a few still remain. I've read the tutorials here, searched the registry, I've got ShellExView, ShellMenuView and Glary Pro. They've helped, but not the 7 things below the red bar here, which is what I want to eliminate:

I don't see the above Office options listed in ShellExView. In ShellMenuView, I've got 34 options for Word, 50-60 for Photoshop - can't discern anything in those programs that deals with the New context menu. Flash ActionScript is listed nowhere. When I've looked in the registry (via the tutorial instructions) I can't find those 7 items, either. WinRar lets you customize the shell menu, but that doesn't affect the New menu. Totally baffled, any ideas?

Hi Colonel Travis,

Have a look at the following application, ShellMenuNew.

It is very easy to use portable utility to trim down the list of items under the ‘new’ explorer menu. You can disable or remove any existing item or enable it with a click of a button.

You don't need to install it and can simply run the .exe file.

I think this may be what you are looking for.

Hope this helps.

Good gravy, how did I miss that one? Is it new? Exactly what I needed, thanks.
