How to remove right-click Explorer Shell Extension


#1

I installed mp3tag with this option checked, then later reinstalled it with the option unchecked. Unfortunately, that didn't remove it from my right-click context menu.

How do I remove it permanently?

Do you use foobar2000 as player? If so, you can use the following file. Simply save it as "Remove MP3Tag Shell Extension.reg" and run it:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\Mp3tag]
[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\foobar2000.aac\shell\Mp3tag]

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\foobar2000.wv\shell\Mp3tag]

If you use another player, you might need to replace the "foobar2000.*" strings with something else.
