Windows 7: Can I edit the Context Menu?

Can I edit the Context Menu?


I have a little question for you guys here. I am wondering if it's possible to edit the Context Menu in Windows 7 (when you right click on a file or folder)? I want to delete "Play with vlc" and "scan with bla bla" etc. Simpleness is the key to success!

I also want to delete or disable the WinRAR extract to... option in the Context menu, exept for when it's a RAR file, then I want to see that in the menu. Hope someone can help me with that

Thanks in advice!

WinRAR lets you customise its context entries by going to Options> settings> Integration. Other Software's may also give you the same sort of choice. As well as what Capt.Jack said, ShellExView and ShellMenuView from NirSoft are also worth a look.
