Hello Bullet,

This tutorial will show you how to restore Text Document back to the New context menu. It's the same in Windows 7 as Vista.

Bullet,

You didn't specify what reg files were correct or not, and what you tried. It had to be posted for clarity.

Doing a repair install will fix this for you without losing anything.

Brink, you have to be the most prolific teacher on the net! Much appreciated. I was hoping to open these as suggested in notepad and learn a little bit. I tried to remove briefcase and link, but ended up removing everything. I restored it back, but I'm curious about how to remove only what I want.

When I opened up restore it looked like much more information than what was in remove. can you tell us any more about how to do this? I have never in all the years of using Windows selected Briefcase. I would love to remove it.

Hello Barefoot,

The Briefcase ZIP download in the tutorial below contains two .reg files. One to remove Briefcase, and one to restore it should decide to later.

You're awesome! If I'm half as smart as my Wife says I'm not, I should be able to look at it and learn twice as much as I deserve.

Attempts at humor aside, can you explain why there was so much more information in the restore file than the remove file? That's what made me stop. I didn't want to edit the files without understanding exactly what I was doing and end up with a corrupt registry.

Sure thing.

There is less in the remove file since it only requires deleting the one registry key to remove all of the subkeys and entries for it to remove the context menu item.

When restoring it the context menu item, you have to restore the default key and all of the separate subkeys and entries as well. They do not get added back by just adding the main key.

I think I have something weird going on. I thought I did it with my editing of a removal .reg file yesterday, but I just ran the remove.reg for the Briefcase and it removes everything except "Library".
