Windows 7: Remove "Shop for music online" context menu in WMP ?

Remove "Shop for music online" context menu in WMP ?

Hi

For the record I'm using Windows 7

To simply put it, I would like to remove the "Shop For Music Online" context menu.

Just as the image shows, how would I go about removing the "Shop For Music Online" context menu ?

Whenever I click a media file, such as a Music Folder or Picture file, I get those stupid annoying context menus.

I find it rather annoying, as much as Windows Media Player has improved over the years, it would be nice If MS wouldn't put unnecessary crap within the menus.

I tried using ShexView and ShellXView however I can't seem to find them within the program.

Anyone know of anywhere in the Registry where this little bugger might be hiding ?

Thanks


Jordan

Hi JordanJP, Welcome to SF,

Just to add if that didn't work Download ShellExView

The rule is to disable non-Microsoft context menu handlers *one-by-one* and verify if the problem is solved. If disabling one does not solve the problem, undo the disabled item and disable the next non-Microsoft handler. Do the same until the problem is solved and finally identify the culprit. Scroll right to see the Company Name column in ShellExView.

Hope this helps
Captain

The re-direct just sends you straight back to the main forum page.

Awesome app though

For future reference, during WMP12 inital set up - do not tick the select 'set up store' box

I also just registered for this forum, only to gain access to the .reg file you posted. haha. It's a dream. I can't believe it actually works! Thanks a million. I must have not paid attention on the initial set up of WMP12 like I usually do... Anyway, thanks again.
