    1. ShellExView doesn't seem to offer the ability to remove baked-in context menu entries such as Windows Photo Viewers "preview" and "rotate" entries.


    2. Link seems to be dead unfortunately. Can't find any reliable mirrors.


    3. Tried this app and suffers from a lot of errors -- Also doesn't have the ability to remove the entries i wish to remove (see point #1).


    4. NOD32 has flagged FileMenu Tools as containing adware. After some Googling i've found other people complaining about adware being forcefully installed, even with the portable version of the program.







    5. See point #1.
    # 2 and #3 ,that's why I posted the warning

    Nice direct recommendations by davehc and mikeytg.

    @Ramzy: Again, my suggestion was just intended to be a starting point for your research. Nothing more; nothing less. However, when I do come across a post that I consider interesting enough to provide a detailed response, I usually spend a great deal more time in providing specific recommendations. Hence forth, I'll stick with those posts that I find interesting enough to respond in detail. Good luck with your issue and let us know how you make out with the other recommendations.

    @caperjack: Thank you kindly.

    @caperjack: I hope we are past this issue between us; however, I must say that I found your response to my initial suggestion "quite unusual" for your posting style; in that, it seems like you went out and tried every one of those programs yourself. Now, since most responders will not take that much time to evaluate a single-line response from someone else, I could only assume you had some ulterior motive for doing so. In summary, it just seemed so strange and far removed from the way you normally respond to others in general. Anyway, thank you kindly.

    Best regards,

    For context menu's I use:
    -Autoruns:
    Autoruns for Windows
    to disable stuff and check general startup entries

    -shellExtView:
    ShellExView - Shell Extension Manager For Windows
    good shell entry tool, manage all the right click menu

    In general keep it simple, these two can handle a lot of entries so far.

    I just figured out how to get rid of "Rotate right", "Rotate left" & the "Preview" which also has to get disabled for images.

    1) Download ShellExView (from nirsoft.net).
    2) Scroll down to the Extension Name: Windows Photo Viewer Image Verbs (make sure you select the "Image" option, since there's another one for Video).
    3) Right click and Disable Selected Item. Say Yes.
    4) Close the program.
    5) You must restart the computer to be able to see that these 3 context menus are gone. (If you don't restart the computer, they will stay there when you right click on an image file... until you restart!)
