    How is it possible to delete non-system items from the context menu? As an example, I am referring to the collection of shortcuts of Libre Office and some other apps.

    How to remove item from Context Menu (after app removed)

    It's not in the open with context menu (tried the steps from the link just to see, but no it's not in there). The app from the context menu is in the first layer, the one when you right click on an item and you have "scan with..." or "edit with notepad++" etc.

    CCC Context menu

    I was recently greeted to a new entry in my desktop context menu after installing 8.12 drivers with the Catalyst Control Center:

    I have no idea what the second entry does, since clicking it results in nothing happening.
    So I open up CCC and find this new section:

    It's completely disabled. I only have a single HD3850. The IGP on my mobo is nVidia, which is disabled anyway.

    I spent the last hour or so finding a way to remove the second entry, and this is the only thing I could find:
    Deleting this key removes both entries from the context menu
    Code: KEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\ACE[/quote] This solved one problem and caused another. I do not like the tray icon, so I have it disabled, so the only way I know to get into CCC is via the context menu. Does anyone know of a way to disable just the "Configure Additive Graphics" entry and keep the CCC entry?

    If I kept both disabled, is there some sort of shortcut I could make to get there instead? I don't want to have to go to Display->Settings->Advanced->CCC every time.
    EDIT: Just made a hotkey to get there. *Smile Removing unwanted apps from Context menu New section :)
