How to edit the right click menu of normal explorer of windows 10

Post by xiasummer » 22 May 2018 08:39

I've installed the lastest version 18.90.

I find whenever I start a normal explorer which my windows 10 originally have, the right click menu of the folders are

1. open in place
2. open in new tab
3. open in other view
4. open in new window

Even after I un-installed xyplorer, they are still there.

I DO NOT LIKE THESE RIGHT CLICK MENUS.

How can I just delete these?

I have triked deleting sth from registry, but didn't find the right value.
I also tried to find sth choice in the xyplorer settings, still didn't find that.

Can anybody help me delete these right click menus?

These items are NOT from XYplorer. If configured (Configuration | Other | Shell Integration | Default File Manager | [x] XYplorer in shell context menu), it only adds a single item to the right click context menu, solely named "XYplorer"

And how to delete them: Try ShellExView from NirSoft (http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/shexview.html) and look for entries with the type "Context Menu" and that are not from Microsoft. Disable them, look if they've vanished...

Those items aren't made by XYplorer. They could be generated from the registry, or from a shell extension you have installed.

The easiest way for you to remove them is probably to use an app like this:

Oh, Yes. I checked by shellmenuView, I find it was QTTabBar which added these right click menus.

You are right, thank you.
