Open Windows explorer, and browse to the following

Tools…Folder Options…File Type…File Folder… Advanced…

Under Actions: I have a button to Remove a particular action, but it is always grayed out.
How can I remove an action?

Same problem for editing an action.


Thanks

With some file types you are not allowed to edit/remove the actions. What file type and action are you trying to modify?

I am trying to remove one that I created. As soon as I add one, it can not be removed. This is what makes it very odd.

You can delete them by running regedit, go to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Shell and delete the unwanted key.
