Edit folder context menu?



Can it be done? I haven't had much luck with ShellExView

I don't want to uninstall WMP since I use it for it's Play-To feature.

Yes it's doable. I did a quick search for them and found them. I'll put together a how-to if I get a chance this evening to show how

Thanks.. though I did manage to get rid of the WMP selections and shop for music by messing around in Default Programs.

It is still possible to switch Browse for Album Art and Open in New Folder? That would be great.

Glad you got the others removed, but as far as moving the menus, certain items can't and I don't see those as being moved. If you do not use the Open in New Window, you could remove it.

This page includes a reg file to remove Open in New Window (scroll down you will see it)

Thanks, but the reg file posted up does more damage than good.

When I remove the Open in New Window, I can't open Explorer from my pinned taskbar icon.
