There's no standard way to do it. You need to look for a 3rd party program or look around under HKRC yourself.

On my #2 system I found a key under HKCR\CLSID with a guid of {5E2121EE-0300-11D4-8D3B-444553540000} and a name of Catalyst Context Menu. I suspect deleting it would remove the context menu entry. If not, doing a registry search for the guid and removing all references would surely remove it.

Hi, I thought I would just reuse this thread instead of starting a new 1.

I'm running a newly built amd A8-6600K System with Windows 8.1 freshly installed, and using AMD Catalyst 13.11 Beta9.4 Drivers.

I have 2 AMD entries at the top of the desktop right-click context menu,

First is the usual AMD Catalyst Control Centre, but underneath it there is a second entry called AMD feature manager which has the green AMD logo icon.

Clicking either of these 2 things will open Catalyst control centre.

Does anybody know how to remove the second (and redundant) 'AMD feature manager' entry?

There is only 1 reference to Catalyst context menu related stuff in the registry, I cant find any reference the AMD feature manager, nor by using several 3rd party tools :/
