WinRar: Remove Items from the Explorer Context (Right-Click) Menu

When you install WinRar, it places a long list of items on your Explorer context menu. You may find that you only use a few of them and the rest are just taking up space. To keep your Explorer context menu more efficient, remove the WinRar items you don’t need by following these steps:


1. Click the Start button and select All Programs.

2. Select the WinRar directory and click WinRar to launch the application.

3. Click Options and select Settings.

4. Select the Integration tab.

5. In the Shell Integration section, click the Context menu items button.

6. Uncheck the items that you want removed from the Explorer context menu.

7. Click OK.

8. Click OK to close the Settings window.
