Removing "Save & Restore Icon Positions" from Context Menu

I know it's here somewhere. A while back I found a Tutorial here on how to add "Save Icon Positions" and "Restore Icon Positions" to the context menu. I am sure while there, I also found a way to remove it. Could someone please point me to the right spot?
