If you're the type of user who works with Image files on a regular basis, you've most likely come across the native feature In Windows 10, that allows you to rotate Images to the right or left via a simple right-click of the mouse. This Is certainly very convenient for yourself, but whatever the reason may be, If you do not want other users who're sharing your PC to use this feature, In this tutorial, I will show you how to remove the Rotate right and Rotate left from the right-click menu.
Before I make a start, here's what I'm referring to. When you right-click any type of Image file, Rotate right and Rotate left will appear In the context menu as shown below.
This allows you to rotate the Image 90 degrees either way. If you don't want other users doing the same, or simply feel that It clutters the context menu, I will demonstrate how to completely remove both the Rotate right and Rotate left. To achieve this, I will use a neat little Registry file that will automatically add the entries to the Windows Registry, and Immediately remove them thereafter.
I have provided the download links to the Registry file, at the end of this article. The process Is extremely simple, so without further delay, let's get this tutorial started.
Step One:Once you've downloaded the file, extract Its contents to a folder of your choice and double-click the Remove Rotate Right & Left.reg file. It will prompt whether to add the entries to the Windows Registry, so hit Yes.
Step Two:A message will be returned, confirming that the entries have been successfully added to the Registry, so click OK to finalize the process.
Step Three:I've now right-clicked on an Image file and as you can see, the Rotate right and Rotate Left options, have been completely removed. Perfect!
Last Step:In the event you've changed your mind and wish to reverse the process, simply double-click the Add Rotate Right & Left.reg file, and hit Yes. This will obviously add both options to the context menu, as per Its original state.
Final Thoughts:It doesn't get much easier than this, does It? The good thing about this tweak, Is that the process Is automated without the need to manually edit the Windows Registry. As such, there Is little to no chance of corruption. Moreover, the process can be reversed, just as easy as It Is to apply.
