I've recently installed Microsoft Office 2013 and noticed a new SkyDrive Pro option is added to the context menu when I right click on a file or folder. I'm not using SharePoint and do not want that extra menu option there.

How do I remove SkyDrive Pro from the Context Menu?

Open the Run Dialog by pressing Win + R Type in cmd and press Enter to open a Command Prompt

If you are running 32 bit Windows type in

regsvr32 /u "%programfiles%\Microsoft Office\Office15\GROOVEEX.DLL"

If you are running 64 bit Windows type in

regsvr32 /u "%programfiles(x86)%\Microsoft Office\Office15\GROOVEEX.DLL"

or if that does not work (as in my case)

regsvr32 /u "%programfiles%\Microsoft Office\Office15\GROOVEEX.DLL"

and press Enter

If it was successful you should see this confirmation dialog:

Note that you must have Administrative rights to do that. For more information see

hi! on 64 bit windows you can also try regsvr32 /u "%programfiles(x86)%\Microsoft Office\Office15\GROOVEEX.DLL" –  leugim May 14 '13 at 1:02

From this answer in another similar question, you can use ShellMenuView to remove Context Menu items.

Other alternative software for removing context menu items:

  • Default Programs Editor - Its UI makes it easy to disable context menu of a specific file type.

  • MenuMaid - Its UI makes it easy to disable all context menu from a specific program.
