Hi, D-11 again with my annoying questions ;) So... Is the Right Click menu open for customization? Like removing commands you don't want/need? Because always when I save pics to my HDD I click on Send Image... instead of Save As...

Yes, hang on............

ShellExView v1.45

Description

Shell Extensions are in-process COM objects which extends the abilities of Windows operating system. Most shell extensions are automatically installed by the operating system, but there are also many other applications that install additional shell extension components. For example: If you install WinZip on your computer, you'll see a special WinZip menu when you right-click on a Zip file. This menu is created by adding a shell extension to the system.


The ShellExView utility displays the details of shell extensions installed on your computer, and allows you to easily disable and enable each shell extension.
ShellExView can be used for solving context-menu problems in Explorer environment. For more information, read the following article: Right-click is slow or weird behavior caused by context menu handlers

Edit: Ain't finding anything about what I'm looking for. Nothing about images nor Firefox.

Right-click on each one and you'll see the options.

I'm stumped as to what I have to do. I know the options and stuff but to disable something I have to find an entry right? Well I'm not finding any entry even remotely attached to what I want gone

Click on the Type column and look over all the context menu entries.

Right-click on one that you want to remove and choose Disable Selected item.

Yes I know but which one of them is it? BTW I don't want to disable the whole menu, just limit the selections

That's why you only choose one item at a time.

So I disabled the entries that didn't pop a warning one by one. Nothing changed at all.

What do you mean by that?

Was some context menu giving you a warning?

I didn't get an error at all.

Was this an upgrade or a :clean" install?

Haven't tried any other programs since I don't really know what to look for. (Program wise)
