Windows 7: Right-click "New" Menu

Right-click "New" Menu

How can I remove entries from the Windows 7 right-click "New" menu. In XP I've gone into the registry to remove entries and also used a program that does it for you. How can I accomplish this in Windows 7? I only ever use a couple things (txt file, shortcut, folder), I don't want to have the huge list of things I'm never going to use. Anybody know how?

Just guessing here, In HKCR remove the "shellnew" key for each item you do not want. Example to remove the briefcase entry delete HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Briefcase\ShellNew
