This question already has an answer here:

I know there is a general answer to this question here, but my question is a little more specific, how to remove the "Turn on Bitlocker.. " entry from it(when I right click on a partition), sometimes I might click it accidentally and it is very annoying. I tried to locate the entry for this item in registry but I couldn't. Would anyone help me?

UPDATE: Some(Moab) told me to disable BitLocker, but I do not want to disable the service because I may use it sometimes. And the recommendation Psycogeek to use Autoruns doesn't because there is no entry for BitLocker.

  • Disable the feature and when you want the feature enable it. – Ramhound Jun 18 '15 at 16:13

Use the AutoRuns program from sysinternals , it shows most of that stuff, and you can save out a configuration, then disable , and load back the saved if you did it wrong. It covers most all of the shell extention and context menu items. I am not totally positive how partition only items show, but it should be in the explorer tab.

  • I think I should prefer to do it from registry, not by using any 3^rd party software, but I appreciate your response. – RogUE Jun 16 '15 at 13:13
