Is there a way to edit the Windows context menu?

Is there a way to edit the Windows context menu?

Gwillewyn
Helpful | Level 5

I know that I can remove Dropbox from the context menu entirely in regedit, but I don't want that.  I want to just remove some of the items on it and only keep "Copy Dropbox link" and "View on Dropbox.com".

Alternatively turn it into a submenu so that it doesn't show all those options every time I right-click a file.

There's so much clutter I don't need!

Hey @Gwillewyn, thanks for posting!

It isn't currently possible to change the context menu items for Dropbox.

While there isn't much I could suggest here as a workaround for this, we do have a request for this in our dedicated area of the Community here.

If you'd like to, you can show your support for this idea by giving it a vote.

Sorry that I can't be of much more help with this, but please let me know if you have any questions!
