Long list of NEW in Win Explorer

By llaw ·
Does anyone know how to control the list of pop-up menu at Win explorer/File/New. It just freeze for 1o seconds and give me a long list of file association list which I seldom use. The same "New" pop up when right click at an empty desktop space.
Appreciate any possible hints...

Long list of NEW in Win Explorer

The easy way is to use Tweakui.
If installed you will find Tweakui in the Control Panel.
Open Tweakui and click on the NEW tab, then uncheck what you don't want.

If you need Tweakui - great utility - go here:

If the entries you want to get rid of are not there then open your registry and find the extension of the file you want to remove.

For instance:

You New Context Menu contains "Bitmap Image". You look for
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.bmp\ShellNew.

Once found change the ShellNew to ShellNew-
Your adding a - at the end of ShellNew. This will also change the corresponding Key in
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\CLASSES\.bmp\ShellNew-

Hope that helps
