Windows 7: Context Menu editing

Context Menu editing

Hello Everybody; welcome to '15 and best wishes for a great new year.
I've just spent about an hour searching the site (doesn't mean I looked in the right places of course) trying to find a straight-forward system to remove items (or add them I suppose) from the right click context menus. I must be seriously deluded here (not unusual) because such a system doesn't appear to be possible. What am I missing?

Hi Bear, HNY. Here's the thing: this is what I have been coming across during my searches so obviously I am not specifying precisely what I need. If I right click a folder for example I get a huge list of options in a drop-down menu that includes all kinds of stuff I never asked for, needed or want cluttering up my space ; a perfect example would be 'Browse in Adobe Bridge' or 'enqueue in BSPlayer'. None of it does any harm but it offends my OCD and I naively thought it would be a straightforward procedure to take this stuff out and dump it where it belongs. As I said, maybe I am deluded once again.
