How to modify Windows right-click options in Explorer

After installing and using Ability, Windows can store settings for Right-Click/New in Explorer - for example, in My Documents, right-click/New/Ability Write Document. These settings are preserved even if Ability is uninstalled.

To remove Ability programs from the New list (and to generally control the list):

  1. Install the Microsoft Tweak UI utility from here: http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/downloads/powertoys/xppowertoys.mspx
  2. Start Tweak UI, select Templates
  3. To remove Ability applications, click on them and select Delete.
