  1. Get rid of the "Delete" option form the context menu in File Explorer


    Is there any way get rid of the "Delete" option form the context menu in File Explorer? I have spent hours trying to find a solution for this extremely tiny speck of a tweak.

    I have now tried tons of context menu editors to no avail (good god there are so many).

    The closest I have come to the desired result are these two options

    This seems like an overkill
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/pre...ectedfrom=MSDN

    And so does this
    Prevent Cut, Paste, Copy, Delete, Re-naming of files & folders

    So to remove any confusion; I know that users can still delete stuff using all kinds of other methods, that's not a problem.
    I need the Delete option gone from the context menu for all files/folders when using File Explorer.
    Any suggestion to achieve exactly what I need and nothing more or less is appreciated.

    Thank you

    :)

  3. Custom context menu entries

    So, just throwing this out there, in case somone knows.

    I have added a custom context menu entry for the program rightload, since by default the menu is broken in vistax64.

    It works pefect with single files, but when I select mutiple files and try to open, I get mutiple instances of the program (which makes sense), here is my entry:

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Rightload\Rightload.exe --server=1 --autostart %1

    So the %1 passes the filename to the program, and when I select multiple files it is just opening multiple instances of rightload each with a different file.

    What I'd like to do is be able to pass a list of the files selected to the program. Since I know it is capable of uploading multiple files from the context menu, all in one instance.

    So, is there something I can pass besides %1 that will do this? I have looked around and can't seem to find an answer anywhere... *Frown Get rid of the "Delete" option form the context menu in File Explorer :(

  4. Get rid of the "Delete" option form the context menu in File Explorer

    File Explorer task bar context menu pinned items not working

    Basically, when I right-click on the File Explorer it brings up the context menu fine. But when I click on a pinned or recent document it closes the context menu and then nothing happens. All other context menus work fine. Also, the File Explorer, Unpin
    and Close Window options work fine (although sometimes the list of recent files covers those options).

    I tried to fix it by running gpedit.msc and going to
    User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > File Explorer and disabled Remove File Explorer’s default context menu. I also enabled Display the menu bar in File Explorer (they were both not
    configured by default). And then I restarted my computer. It fixed nothing.

    Just a small problem, because I can always just open another window through the context menu or if it's cover open another directory in another window through the already opened window. It's just a pain because I do
    a lot of file management, and it makes it really tedious and slow.

    Thanks,
