How to remove 'open with atom' from desktop context menu?


#1

Hello everyone,

I installed Atom yesterday. It is a really nice program. But, today i noticed that it has added a context menu item on desktop, which is extremely annoying for me.
Please, if anyone can guide me how this can be removed, I will be extremely thankful.

Same here, I was able to remove them by searching the
registry for “Open Folder with Atom” and “Open with Atom” and removing
the “Atom” folder from the three locations.

The three locations are;
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT*\shell
