Windows – Remove “Delete” option from Windows 7 Context Menu

context menuwindows 7

Well it ever so often happens that I want to click rename and I end up clicking delete.For delete I use the DEL key so I have no need for the context menu option.

I have tried several programs but unfortunately they only remove context menu items added by third party programs or some Windows´s own thing that I don't want to remove.

I found one program that potentially could do what I want it to(not 100% sure tho): here but for some reason I can't get it to work.

I made a small mockup how it looks now and how I want it to look:

Alternatively if this can't be removed then maybe there's a way to make it do nothing (without breaking the delete functionality globally) or make it greyed out?

For delete i use the DEL key so i have no need for the context menu option.

In that case, just get used to using F2 for Rename.

I looked into editing the registry to shorten context menus in Windows, but I only found ways to remove entries made by third-party programs (and possibly added Microsoft programs).
