Remove "Format..." from the right-click on disk drives?

Recommended Posts

I don't want the "Format..." option on the right click of

my disk drives, I have removed the "format.com" file but just

need to get rid of the context menu item, anyone know of a

tweak to remove it?

I have searched Google and this forum, to no avail...

I searched the registry for these terms...





It does not appear in the registry. :huh:

So I wonder if it is in hex values?

Nope, because I already searched for the hex equivelant.

Methinks nobody knows how to get rid of this :(

I have been trying for almost 2 hours.

I don't know exact registry but here is suggestion.

Navigate to : HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Drive\shellex

and backup first the existing registry and try to del and check the result one by one.

I hope, U should get Ur solution.

One by one?? :blink:

Anyway, I've got the same problem but only with shorcuts. Can it be done more easily?

I'd like to see the link menu with right click, not the drive options (with "format")
