Windows 7: Remove "Create Shortcut" from file and folder context menu?

Quick q (as I was considering this for ALL superfluous context options, ie rename, cut, copy, delete)

DOES removing this context menu prohibit shortcuts being created through drag-and-drop ?

(Hold SHIFT to move)
(Hold CTRL to copy)
(Holder CTRL+SHIFT to create shortcut)

Thanks

I can't answer, I never was able to remove it myself.

So I managed to get to this point



and only this "create shortcut" remains.
Isn`t there an easy way to remove it like the other entries through .reg file?
Because I don`t want to mess up the system with the reshacker.
