  4. Add or Remove Default New Context Menu Items in Windows 10

    Add or Remove Start Context menu items

    Nyima,

    I was not asking about adding and removing regular app items to the start menu, but rather adding or removing items from the Context Menu (Win+X). Specifically, I would like to add the Devices and Printers item to the list.

    Thank you for the response.
