    As the title says I want this feature completely removed from all context menus.

    Suggest you back up the registry before doing this (standard practice for registry edits):

    Run regedit, navigate to:

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\ShellEx\ContextMenuHandlers\Library Location

    And delete the folder "library Location".

    Thanks, that did the trick.

    Any idea how to get rid of "folders" in 8.1 that appear in my computers root menu?

    Are you referring to folders such as "documents", "music" etc in the navigation pane?

    Those are the ones, yes. I found the solution to this elsewhere:
