How can I remove New Context Menu Items in Windows? I used this tutorial from the Windows 10 forum to make this reg file:

INI:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00


; Bitmap image
[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.bmp\ShellNew]


; Contact
[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.contact\ShellNew]


; Rich Text Document
[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.rtf\ShellNew]


; Microsoft Access Database
[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.accdb\Access.Application.16\ShellNew]


; Google Docs
[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.gdoc\ShellNew]


; Google Sheets
[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.gsheet\ShellNew]


; Google Sheets
[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.gslides\ShellNew]

After using the reg file, all of them apart from the Contact and Access Database ones reappear again after a few seconds. The tutorial doesn't mention anything about this problem, so I am assuming that Windows 11 does something different.

Is there any way to get rid of these? I have too many of them in the menu and I never need to use these ones, so I would like to remove them.

Standalone app. Run as administrator. It's an old app but it worked for me for most of the ones I didn't want.. Except if you use Google Drive. It will not get rid of Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides.They always come back.

Oh yeah, I remember reading about the Google Drive thing a while back. I think this program must be just like NirSoft ShellMenuNew which I have tried before. I only found my Notion notes on this problem after making my post. I think the Bitmap template always come back whatever you do.

Thanks for the help.

There are discussions elsewhere where .BAT versions of this are being discussed.
