    Can somebody help me to remove entries from the context menu of audio/vide files labeled "Cast to Device"?

    Would be grateful.

    So far I found this, but I am not really sure if this is relevant:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Casting\CastingTypes\Audio\\MiraCast

    Let me refer to my answer to the exact same question on TenForums.com: tenforums.com/customization/9406-remove-cast-device-right-click-menu.html

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Shell Extensions\Blocked]
    "{7AD84985-87B4-4a16-BE58-8B72A5B390F7}"="Play To menu"

    I googled and didn't find that thread on ten forums, well thank you very much, it requires relog, but it works.

    ... and here I was thinking this was because I recently got a Chromecast, and recently installed Chrome in a VM.
