interface to manage right click menu in internet explorer
« on: July 02, 2005, 07:51:22 AM »
Hi,

For example I have this menu item in right click menu in IE "Google Search".

I don't remember when or how I got it...

It would be nice to have some sort of an interface to be able to edit such items in right click menu in IE.

So for example I could add an item I really want "Search on Amazon" =)

TIA

its a good idea and an important thing, especially for apps that add stuff you dont want.

there are one or two freeware apps for this - i'm trying to remember what the names of them are.
if no one else can remember i will dig through my files and find them.

For non-standard items, check the following registry key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\MenuExt

For managing searches and such, see this site. They have a tool for doing it.

ShellExView from www.nirsoft.net or Autoruns from www.sysinternals.com
are usefull in finding and disabling plug-ins.

Not editing the context menu, this is more for management
