I was wondering if anyone knew how to edit what shows up in the shell extension new?

to clarify the one where you right click say on desktop and select new -> folder ,shortcut, etc etc...

Most of the items that show up under the 'New' menu item are in the registry under "ShellNew" headings. Example:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\.zip\ShellNew]
"NullFile"=""

Which is the entry for New winzip file. All of these entries are under their mother applications entry, which means they aren't grouped together in any one place.

I use a utility called RegCrawler which is a Registry editor / search utility and just enter the search string "ShellNew" which returns ALL the entries, then I edit them as and how I please. Find RegCrawler at:
