When you open Control Panel - Folder Options - File Types tab, select the File Folder entry, and click the Advanced button, the Edit and Remove buttons may be grayed out. As a result, you may be unable to remove the additional right-click command entries for file system folders.
To remove the additional entries, you may need to edit the registry. Follow these steps:
- Click Start, Run and type Regedit.exe
- Navigate to the following branch:
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT \ Directory \ shell
- Backup the key to a file. More information is here
- Right-click the subkey which you want to remove, and choose Delete.
- Exit the Registry Editor
