Right click on desktop, "new" option.

    As we all know we can right-click anywhere on the desktop and choose "new", which will follow with a list of new files you can quickly create on the desktop.

    How do you edit and/or remove entried from this list?

    I understand it's an option in TweakUI, but I'm wondering if there is some registry key I can mess with before I install any software

    Thanks

    Remove items:

    example >
    open regedit and find
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.txt
    right click the ShellNew subkey and delete it, or rename it to ShellNewOld
    reboot



    Add items:

    example >
    open regedit and find
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.jpeg
    right click .jpeg, create a new key, name it ShellNew
    in the right panel, right click an empty space, new > string value, name it NullFile
    reboot
