Clean Up Internet Explorer and Windows Explorer Right Click Context Menu
March 27, 2010 | Filed under Software;
Some third party software can be very useful especially when it installs a right click extension to the context menu. One example is 7-Zip, an archiving software. If you have downloaded a compressed file on the Internet and drop it to your desktop, you can easily extract it by right clicking on the file and select Extract. If it doesn’t have this feature, you will have to go to Start menu and look for 7-Zip, run it and then load the file by again looking for the compressed file at desktop.
However sometimes a bad software or a uninstaller can cause leftovers of right click extension even after uninstalling the software. This makes the right click menu longer and harder to find for the menu that you want to select. It is possible to remove the invalid or useless right click context menu from the registry but the easier way is to use MenuMaid.
MenuMaid offers a fast and easy way to clean up your Window Explorer and Internet Explorer right-click context menu. All you need to do is install and run the program, uncheck any items that you don’t want it to appear on your right click. If you want it to appear on your right click menu again, just check it back. The changes takes effect immediately without reboot. MenuMaid works on all versions of Windows.
