How to Remove the Web Research Shortcut Menu Commands in IE


  1. After installing Web Research, some of my existing shortcut menu commands in Internet Explorer don't show up any more.
  2. If I delete the shortcut menu entries in the Windows registry, Web Research scans and installs its shortcut menu entries everytime Internet Explorer is started.
  3. I do not want the Web Research shortcut menu commands in Internet Explorer.


The custom Internet Explorer shortcut menu commands are defined in the Windows registry. You cannot disable them in the Web Research options. Every time IE starts up, Web Research checks the presence of the entry "Web Research: Save Picture...". If this entry no longer exists, all other menu entries will be registered again.

So you can delete all menu command entries in the registry except this one.

  1. Run Windows Registry Editor: Click Start, Run and type regedit.exe.
  2. Open the key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\MenuExt.
  3. Below this key you can find all shortcut menus entries.
  4. Delete the keys you don't want to have except "Web Research: Save...".
