How To Remove Intel Menu (Graphics Properties, Graphics Options, & Intel TV Wizard) From Windows 7 Desktop Context Menu

 

Users who have been running Windows 7 on PCs with Intel graphics might have already asked this question themselves. If you are confused with the title, when you install Intel Graphics Media Accelerator for Windows 7, it adds three options to the Windows 7 desktop context menu (right-click menu): Graphics Properties, Graphics Options, and Intel (R) TV Wizard.

Since many of us use these options once in a blue moon, removing these options will make the context menu leaner and cleaner. But if you open Intel Graphics Properties, you will not be able to see any option that lets you remove these three options from the desktop context-menu.

After searching in Windows registry for a while, we have come up with a simple solution using which one can easily remove these options. To remove Intel Graphics Properties, Graphics Options, and Intel (R) TV Wizard entries from Windows 7 desktop context-menu follow the simple steps given below:
