Windows 7: How to disable paste and paste shortcut in desktop CM

How to disable paste and paste shortcut in desktop CM

Hello,

I would like to remove paste shrotcut option from the desktop context menu, and if it is possible paste option too. I mean, I would like not to have those options if I am not in process of copying something. I am using Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit, and when I right click on desktop I have these options, even if I am not copying anything. There is a picture in attachment of my desktop cm, so u can see what I want removed.

Can anyone tell me where to disable this in registry, or wherever it is possible ?

Thanks

Hello Shone89 and Welcome to Seven Forums,

Why do you want or need these options removed?
Can't you just ignore them?

It's not unusual for Windows programs to disable options that are not applicable "at the moment".
I think it's better for stability and reliability to not try and tweak Win 7 and make changes to do things it is not designed to do.
Maybe there is some registry tweak or 3rd party program that will do what you want, but is it worth it?
IMHO, making changes like this may cause problems in the future.
How much is really gained versus the potential risk?

I'm all for playing around and trying different things, but I think that's best done in a Test environment where a Backout plan is in place, if something goes wrong.

Right now I'm on a Win 7 OS that was installed in Oct 2009 and it is working very well.
Yes, it is very "Vanilla", but it works very well and reliably.
