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
