How to Remove Give Access to from the Context Menu

You’ll see the “Give access to” option if you right-click the drive, file, or folder and select Show more options.

You can remove it from the context menu if you don’t want it. Let’s see how. I use Windows 11 here.

Remove “Give access to” from the Windows 11 Context Menu

Here are the steps:

Open the Registry Editor. I recommend that you create a backup of the Registry before continuing.

Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > Microsoft > Windows > CurrentVersion > Shell Extensions > Blocked.

You need to create Blocked if you don’t see it. Here’s how: Right-click on the Shell Extensions and select New > Key. Provide the name as Blocked and press the Enter key.

Right-click on the blank space in the right pane.

Select New > String Value.

Provide {F81E9010-6EA4-11CE-A7FF-00AA003CA9F6} as name and press the Enter key.

Restart File Explorer or sign out and sign back in.

That’s it.

Note: To add this option to the context menu, delete the String Value you created. Restart File Explorer or log out and log back in.
