Remove, Delete Right Click Context Menu Options

For creating a new file of a particular format we generally use new File context menu. In this menu you find large number of sub-options which can create a new file of any format present in those options. We face problems when the list of these sub-options is too long to find out the desired one and sometimes when the list is too short to be used. So, here I have a tool named as ShellNewHandler which can optimize the size of that list as per the needs of the user.

It is a very simple tool; it will neither require any sort of installation nor will it require any type of update and it has an unexpected size of 27Kb. So, you can very well estimate that it will perform its operation quite fast even without interrupting the system’s general operation.


As you can see from the snapshot that it contains the list of all the possible formats of file which can be created. You can start this tool by just double clicking the .exe file and then you will see the same window as shown in the snapshot. All the available formats of file will be automatically detected by the tool and then enlisted into this list.

In front of every format of file, you will have a check box which can be checked or unchecked as per the needs of the user. Select some of the specific formats by checking the boxes in front of them; they must be selected on basis of frequency of their usage. After selecting them click apply and then press OK.

Now nest when you will see the New File context menu, then you will find that only those format options are available which were selected by that tool and rest of them will be eliminated from the menu. So, now you have a list of all the useful file formats and thus now you will not get irritated while searching a file format out of the huge list of options.

When next time you think of introducing any other type of file option in the list then you can start this tool and then follow the same procedure mentioned above. You will see those omitted format options again in your context menu. Use it n Enjoy!!!
