Editing Windows 10/11 Context Menus
In Windows, when you right-click on files and folders the menu that appears is known as a “Context Menu.” Over time, as you install additional apps, the number of items that appear on context menus sometimes increases to a point where these menus can become inefficient to navigate and use. When (or preferably before) you get to this point, I would encourage you to consider paring down the number of available context menu items. If this topic interests you and you want to learn more about modifying your PC’s context menus the thewindowsclub.com article titled “Add, Remove, Edit Context Menu items in Windows 11/10 with Context Menu Editors” covers several solutions that can help you to address this problem.
