Remove SkyDrive Pro from Windows Context Menu
« on: April 04, 2013, 06:32:38 PM »

You may have noticed this new 'SkyDrive Pro' option when you install Microsoft Office 2013.
If you're like me and dislike change, you might have no need for it and want it disabled.
I am here to show you how to make it go away.

There is no way to disable this option within the Office 13 interface, so our only option is to remove it from the Windows Registry.

Hit the Start menu and type 'regedit.exe' and press Enter.

Once Regedit comes up, navigate to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AllFilesystemObjects\shell

Expand 'shell' and you will see a key named SPFS.ContextMenu.

Right click that key and delete it.

You should notice the SkyDrive Pro option has disappeared. Congratulations!
