I've installed a bunch of extensions in VS2012 and now there are way too many items in my context menu (i.e. right-click in code window). I know I can edit the menu in Tools -> Customize -> Commands, but frankly, this editor is not very user-friendly. There are a whole bunch of items that don't actually show up when I right-click in my editor, you can't move items to submenus, and when I want to manually add some command to a submenu I often can't find it.

Is there a better way to edit this menu (and others)? Maybe some extension or third-party software that I can't find for some reason? Even directly editing the XML seems user-friendlier if I knew where to find it...

No; There is no other way. – Ramhound Apr 15 '14 at 11:44
Oh my! What I would give to have something else apart from Microsoft's terrible context menu editor. – Alex Essilfie Jul 11 '14 at 22:11
