How do I edit the Windows Explorer right

By cary44 ·
I need to be able to edit the Windows Explorer right-click context menu.
Specifically, I need to be able to delete entries and rename entries.
I have a program called MenuEdit, but that only allows me to add entries.
Thanks in advance for yourresponses....

I would use Regedit (not RegEdt32) Have a look at the menu items you want to delete, use FIND in Regedit, you may have to press F3 a few times, then when you find the Menu area, delete the item you do not want. If your new to Regedit backup by Export Registry first. I found mine under HKEY-USers\microsoft\windows\currentversion\Exporer\ it took about 5 presses of F3

Did not specifically answer the question.
I have numerous edits to make and cannot afford to search for each one.

First of all, what part of the menu ?
If you're talking about the stuff that apears when you right-click a file then you have to fiddle with the registry keys:
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shellext and sub-keys
AND the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\your_file_type_here\ and sub-keys.

I advise, however, that this is a VERY sensitive part of your system and, as such, only change something AFTER backup AND if you're know what you're doing. I don't offer warranty and don't want to hear "...YOU TRASHED MY SYSTEM, YOU F**..." :-)

Good luck
