    How to Add or Remove "Manage" from Computer Context Menu


       Information
    This will show you how to add or remove the Manage item from the Computer context menu in the Start Menu, desktop icon, and Windows Explorer navigation pane in Windows 7 and Vista.

    When Manage is selected, it runs the C:\Windows\System32\CompMgmtLauncher.exe file to open Computer Management.

       Note
    Removing Manage from the Computer context menu in the Start Menu will not prevent Computer Management from being opened. It only removes it from this context menu.

    EXAMPLE: Computer Context Menu in Start Menu with Manage Added and Removed

    Hello Vagablonde,

    The tutorial below may work better for that instead. It will restore the default registry entries for that, and hopefully sort it for you. :)

    Manage - Fix "File does not have a program associated"

    Hope this helps,
