    Hello

    I would like to remove the "Print" option from the context menu, the REG file I had for W10 doesn't seem to work and the info found on various sites/forums only seems to work for W10
    Is it possible ?

    Thanks

    It's not trivial due to randomized appids (new notepad having it's own Print shell entry).
    So a reg file won't cover all, but a script might:
    remove_print_contextmenu.bat
    Code:
    @echo off
    
    ::# elevate with native shell by AveYo
    >nul reg add hkcu\software\classes\.Admin\shell\runas\command /f /ve /d "cmd /x /d /r set \"f0=%%2\"& call \"%%2\" %%3"& set _= %*
    >nul fltmc|| if "%f0%" neq "%~f0" (cd.>"%temp%\runas.Admin" & start "%~n0" /high "%temp%\runas.Admin" "%~f0" "%_:"=""%" & exit /b)
    
    echo HKCR\*\shell\print& reg add "HKCR\*\shell\print" /v ProgrammaticAccessOnly /d Apartment /f
    for /f "delims=" %%W in ('reg query HKCR /s /k /f "print" /e') do echo;%%~W& reg add "%%~W" /v ProgrammaticAccessOnly /d Apartment /f
    
    pause
    ::

    Pff. Like.. Pff x2. You have the script that will take everything existing, including microsoft office, or even libre office. Anyway, knock yourself out!

    If it's adding the "ProgrammaticAccessOnly" value, it doesn't work, already tested
    Otherwise I will test

    Why do you post updates here, this is not the thread of that app.

    When you want to promote your or anyone elses projects at least post the link to the original post for that app.

    This thread was meant to be a tweaks and fixes thread, where tweaks and fixes would be published, like shown at the OP.

    Is there a tweak available for this in 22621... 22h2.
    Icons are spaced as before in detail view.
    In list view, the icons folders in first column get spaced out.
    It is not visually appealing and I can't figure out why MS made this change from around 22598. It has made 22h2 quite unappealing to me. So is the sudden change in colour of top bar of message box titlebar From pure white to dirty grey.
    I really also don't know if turning on transparency or seeing accent color on taskbar is such a good idea.
    Turning on transparency makes the white background yellow. Turning on accent color for titlebar brings up a new set of visual defects on file explorer and programs.
