However, the more application you installed, then the item list in context menu, especially in New option will be more developing and there would be no choice to reduce the amount. for example when you installed Microsoft Office, surely there would be more than one item (word, power point, Publisher, etc) , moreover if you see others.It is quite disturbing , isn’t it? But cool, SOT has the solution. Just use ShellMenuNew.

ShellMenuNew is a free software which you can use to reduce items amount in New Option, so it won’t create many choices you actually don’t need. Since this software is portable, so you don’t have to do installation first.

Using it is also so easy, first of all, download and run directly its executable file. After ShellMenuNew is opened, automatically there would be shown a similar item list just like context menu in New Option. If the item list is not similar, do refresh first.
