I have a bunch of shell extensions which show up from the right mouse click. I would like to delete the ones I never use. Is there a tool which can do this? I know they can be removed from the registry but I couldn't find some of them in the registry and I prefer to use a tool which can safely remove them. (using Windows 8)

Use Autoruns for Windows v11.42 from the Sysinternals Suite.

Disable the Explorer extension:

You can use Ccleaner Like this: Tools > Startup > Context Menu enter image description here

Or use Shell Menu View by NirSoft.

ShellMenuNew is only for the New items menu. ShellExView and ShellMenuView would be better. – Karan Feb 4 '13 at 0:39
