Removing the Win Explorer TTP menu

Removing the Win Explorer TTP menu

We install the TTP menu in Windows Explorer by default.  However, a couple of users have requested that this menu be removed.

Here is how you can do that:

- Backup the Registry file to avoid any issue – Inside Registry Editor, File > Export
- Save the commands below to a "remove-menu.bat" file. (we would provide the actual bat file but most email engines strip batch files and virus scanners don't like it)
- Open a Command Prompt window, type cmd in the bottom bar and select Run as Administrator on the right side (must be with this privilege to work)
- Execute/Run the .bat provided on any directory.
 
***The menu options will be dismissed immediately.
