    Windows 11: How to remove Edit With Clipchamp from File Explorer's context menu


    Clipchamp is a new default application of Microsoft's Windows 11 operating system. Microsoft purchased the web-based video editor in 2021 and integrated it into development builds of Windows 11 in early 2022.

    The free version of Clipchamp was not really usable back then, as it had too many restrictions. It watermarked all videos and limited exports to 480p. Microsoft lifted some of the restrictions and changed the available plans. Exports support 1080p now and watermarks are no longer added in free version exports.

    Microsoft made Clipchamp a default app in the Windows 11 2022 Update.

    Windows 11 users may come into contact with Clipchamp in various places. One of them is File Explorer, more precisely, in the right-click context menu of media file types.

    The Edit with Clipchamp option is placed prominently in the context menu. Windows 11 users who don't use the media editor have two main options to remove the context menu listing in File Explorer:

    1. Uninstall Clipchamp entirely on the system.
    2. Edit the Windows Registry to remove only the Clipchamp context menu entry.

    The first option is straightforward and better suited for most users, as it is simpler to execute.

    Uninstall Clipchamp on Windows 11


    Windows 11: How to remove Edit With Clipchamp from File Explorer's context menu clipchamp-uninstall.png

    1. Select Start > Settings.
    2. Switch to Apps > Installed Apps.
    3. Type clipchamp in the search field at the top to locate the app quickly.
    4. Activate the three-dots menu next to Clipchamp's entry and select the uninstall command.
    5. Confirm the uninstall command.

    Clipchamp is removed from the system, including the application's context menu entry.

    Windows 11 users who use Clipchamp, but do not need the context menu entry, may remove just the entry from the operating system. This method may also be useful if Clipchamp was removed through other means, which did not remove the context menu entry.

    Note: The Registry is a core system of Windows and it is recommended to create a backup before proceeding. If you don't use a backup program yet, try the free Paragon Backup & Recovery.

    1. Open the Start interface.
    2. Type Registry Editor and select the result.
    3. Confirm the security prompt that is displayed.
    4. Paste the path Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Shell Extensions into the address field at the top.
    5. If the subkey Blocked does not exist, right-click on Shell Extensions and select New > Key. Name it Blocked.
    6. Right-click on Blocked and select New > String value.
    7. Name it {8AB635F8-9A67-4698-AB99-784AD929F3B4}. The string is the Clipchamp GUID.
    8. Exit the Registry Editor.
    9. Restart the system.

    Tip: you can reinstall Clipchamp at any time from the Microsoft Store.

    Closing Words

    Windows 11 users who don't use the Clipchamp media editor may remove it from the system without ill-effects. It is the easier option and there is an option to install Clipchamp again from the Microsoft Store if it is needed in the future.

  2. File Explorer Context Menu

    Hi Mark, my name is Neil and I'm a Windows 11 user like you.

    I too wasn't thrilled by the new context menu options in Windows 11. However, since using it, my New > option appears on the first context menu, where you simply hover and then select New Folder just like Windows 10.

    Now I can't be sure if this changed by itself (adapted because I have used the New option a few times) or if this came from an update? So you might want to try using the New option a few times and see if it moves to the first context menu.

    However, to answer your question, yes! There is a way to restore a full context menu back to Windows 11.

    It involves editing the registry but is a fairly simple thing to do and it is also easy to remove too by deleting the key you create if you ever needed to.

    There are many websites with the steps that show you what to do, but I think this one is the best as a step-by-step guide: https://www.techrepublic.com/article/how-to-res...

    After following the instructions and rebooting, you will have a full context menu when you right click.

    I hope this helps!

    Kindest regards,

    Neil

    File Explorer Context Menu

    Changes to the File Explorer context menu in Windows 11 have made it more inconvenient for me to use compared with Windows 10. I use "New Folder" frequently and this is now 2-clicks away, in favour of a list of commands I never use. Is there a way to change way this context menu displays?
