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 Office on 32 bit Windows type in

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

If you are running 32 bit Office on 64 bit Windows type in

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

If you are running 64 bit Office on 64 bit Windows type in

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

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.
