  1. Just a couple of days ago, he worked on it.
    He started by removing the CLSID {1A68CF90-753A-4523-A4A4-40CAB4BC6EFF} {7173725A-9C0E-44B1-8319-69F7D983E8D6} {D85A2008-32B3-4747-8189-7FB809F3CFF1} and AppID {EB28E902-728E-42C4-97DC-DA89E144C744}
    Only then realized remove this section (including in other formats), as well as being not necessary to me points WMP player.

  2. Another request:

    how to remove “Windows Defender” from the context menu?

    I don’t use it, so it’s quite annoying !

  3. Disabling a certain context menu entry is better than deleting it.

    To disable a certain entry just add the value “LegacyDisable” (REG_SZ) to e. g. (for .jpg)
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\SystemFileAssociations\.jpg\Shell\T3D Print

    Normally this can be done very convenient with the NirSoft tool “ShellMenuView”. For those special entries under jpg/png/bmp (3D Print with 3D Builder) the tool does unfortunately not work.


    1. I use this trick in Winaero Tweaker
      I use the programmaticaccessonly value as you already know.
      BTW, the ability to hide this context menu entry is coming to the next version of the app.
