    Delete context menu item


    This is kind of baffling to me, but I can't find where to delete a context menu item that appeared when I installed some program on my HTPC (Windows 7 Ultimate x64).
    It's not there when I right-click on a file or on a folder. It's there when I right-click the desktop.


    It's the last item "Power".

    Where in the registry can I delete this?

    Hello yomammary, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    It looks like you added the desktop context menu from the tutorial below. If so, then using step 2 will remove it.
    If not, then export your DesktopBackground key at the registry location below, and upload it here. I'll be happy to take a look at it to see what item needs to be deleted to remove this for you.

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\DesktopBackground

    Hope this helps, :)

    Thanks!
    Deleted the "Power" key in "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\DesktopBackground\Shell".
    Totally worked :)
