FileMenu Tools: Free Utility to Customize Context Menu in Windows XP, Vista and 7
Many times when we install a software in Windows, it automatically adds its entry in context menu (right-click menu). Some software like WinRAR, 7-Zip, etc allow you to remove these entries using their Settings window but many other software don't allow it.
To remove these entries manually, you need to edit Windows Registry. We have posted a tutorial in past to add/remove entries from context menu using Registry Editor:
But if you are not familiar with registry but want to remove unwanted entries from context menu, here is an excellent freeware for you.
"FileMenu Tools" is a free software for Windows which allows you to remove unnecessary entries from context menu. It also allows you to configure "Send To" menu. You can add new commands or delete existing commands from Send to menu.
This free utility also adds its own menu in context menu which is actually a group of lots of useful system commands like Copy to, Move to, Copy Name, etc.
It also allows you to add or remove entries from its own menu so that you can have only desired entries. Simply open the program and deselect the desired entries which you don't want to show. You can add new entries by clicking on "Add Command" link given in left sidebar.
If you don't want to show FileMenu Tools entry in context menu, you can disable it by deselecting the "Options -> Enable FileMenu Tools" option.
The most interesting and useful part of this awesome tool is the ability to remove unwanted entries from context menu. In the main window, click on "Commands of other applications" tab and here you can configure entries for all kind of context menu like file context menu, folder context menu, drive context menu, etc.
It can be installed in Windows 98, Me, 2000, XP, Vista and 7. Both 32-bit and 64-bit editions are supported.
