How to Use CCleaner to Speedup Right Click Context Menu in Windows

Context menu that appears when you right click a file or folder in Windows is a timesaving feature. When installing some software, it’ll also add one or more items on to the right-click context menu, which results in a long list context menu with lot of stuff that you even don’t need. Unfortunately, the long list context menu may take longer time to load when right clicking on a file. The situation become even verse if it includes lot of faulty entries.

 Here is how to use CCleaner, one of the most popular Windows cleaning software to remove or disable unnecessary and faulty context menu items from the right click context menu and speed up the right click menu.

With CCleaner, you can disable or delete all third party context menu entries that you don’t need. Besides, as it doesn’t include Microsoft context menu entries, anyone can use it without any worry.


-Open Ccleaner and select the Tools tab - Startup tab - Context Menu tab. It’ll display a list of third party context menu entries.

-Select an entry and choose Disable or Delete (Delete option is not recommended) button to remove the entry from the context menu. Then close CCleaner.

As I told above, Ccleaner is able to remove third party content menu entries only; advanced users can use application like ShellExView (it includes Microsoft entries also) to customize the context menu.
