    Start Menu context menu on Windows 10


    Hi All,

    Thanks for visiting my thread. I'm rebuilding all computers to Windows 10 at the School I work at. I've been able to lock down everything using Group Policy and Registry tweaks apart from two niggling little issues.

    1. I can't get rid of Open file location when right-clicking on programs under all apps on the start menu. There is a tutorial on this site which includes registry entries to remove this option but it is not working for me. The other tutorial to remove run as administrator worked perfectly. The start menu is redirected to a folder on the DC and we don't want the students being able to browse the DC

    2. I can't remove the Win + X ( right-click on Start ) context menu. I've enabled all the relevant GPO settings but this just refuses to die. All the options are disabled so this is less important than the first issue. Would be nice to know how to do this still.

    Any help or advice would be greatly received. Many thanks for reading.

    Kind Regards, Martin

  3. Win+X context menu shortcuts not working

    I can confirm (on my Windows 10 notebook) that Airdroid Desktop Client 3.1.4 causes the right click start context menu (clicking the icons) to stop working, i.e., the context menu pops up, but clicking on any icon does nothing.

    I uninstalled Airdroid 3.1.4 and used CCleaner to fix any Airdroid related registry issues, restarted Windows 10 and the context menu works just fine.

    There is a new desktop "widget" feature in the Airdroid Client 3.1.4 that most likely conflicts with the shell extensions of the start context menu in Windows 10.

    I'll be using a previous version of Airdroid in order to avoid the issue until Airdroid and/or Microsoft fixes it.

    P.S. the widget feature works pretty good...
