    Removing entries in "file>new" menu

    In every folder when file>new is selected it seems every program is listed in the drop down menu.The list is getting long and I can live without the majority of the 24 entries from Briefcase to Winzip. Does anyone know where in the Registry to edit this list? Thanks in advance. <img src=/S/thinks.gif border=0 alt=thinks width=15 height=15>

    Re: Removing entries in "file>new" menu

    Run TweakUI, (you do have it don't you?), and select the NEW tab. On this tab deselect the items you do NOT what listed in the "new" listing. I know this will remove the items when you use the "Right Click" and select new, which appears to be the same listing I get when selecting a folder in Windows Explorer and selection on the menu "File, New"

    If you do NOT have TweakUI you can get it <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.microsoft.com/NTWorkstation/downloads/PowerToys/Networking/NTTweakUI.asp> here.</A> This version will work with Windows 98 Fe, Se, ME; NT4, Windows 2000.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Re: Removing entries in &quot;file>new&quot; menu

    Thanks Dave. I guess it was too simple to think to use TweakUI. I got in the habit of making all my changes manualy. I guess you could say I have become a 'Registry Explorer' of sorts. <img src=/S/bingo.gif border=0 alt=bingo width=15 height=22>
    After a bit of sleep I realized that the reg-cleaner (made by Jouni Vuorio) I use has a tab section devoted to taking care of my problem. Thanks again for your suggestion <img src=/S/cheers.gif border=0 alt=cheers width=30 height=16>
