    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.

    I would like to add and remove items from the Windows 10 Start Context menu. Does anyone have instructions on how to do this. (The other posts in the community for shell editors did not work.)
