Welcome to the forum,

Wired Shortcut's In Context Menu-context.jpg

This involves navigating in the registry, if you are not comfortable or knowledgeable with this, please do not attempt.

That being said,

First, to be on the safe side,

Registry - Backup and Restore

Then, in regedit, navigate to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\DesktopBackground\Shell

That's where you'll find them, right click, delete.
